Parish Council

The Parish Pastoral Council participates with the pastor and the people of the Cathedral parish in prayerful reflection on the parish’s mission and ministry. It serves as a consultative body to the pastor; collaborates in formulating policies; serves as an instrument of planning and evaluation of parish direction; leads processes for involving parishioners in the mission of the parish and establishing goals that witness to Gospel values; and fosters effective communication within the parish. Parishioners may nominate themselves or others for at-large positions. The selection process takes place in the spring if at-large seats are available. The parish will be notified concerning the selection process.  Parish Council At-Large positions serve a three year term that is renewable one time.

The Parish Council meets monthly, usually on the third Thursday of the month at 6 pm.
