The Parish Pastoral Council continually reviews and evaluates all the activities through which the parish community strives to fulfill the goals of the Parish Mission Statement. Working in an advisory capacity, the Council assists the pastor in providing leadership for parish ministries, programs, and activities. Areas of ministry within the parish generally fall into the following categories: Christian Action, Christian Formation, Community Life, Liturgy and Music, Saint Joseph Grade School & Preschool, and Administration.
Membership on the Parish Pastoral Council consists of the pastor as ex officio member; laypersons elected through a discernment process who serve staggered three-year terms; and a representative from each of the following: Christian Action Commission, Christian Formation Commission, Community Life Commission, Liturgy Commission, School Board, and Stewardship Commission. The discernment process occurs in the spring. The Council elects officers.
