Pastoral Council

The pastoral council is an advisory/consultative body for the pastor.

Regular meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the Parish Rectory in the Fireside Room.

Sandra Regan leads a group of approximately ten men and women who serve on the council.  Sandra can be reached via email at: sregan.sjs@gmail.com

Responsibilities of the council:

  • The council does not manage parish operations.
  • The members meet with the pastor and offer him the wisdom of the community.
  • The council is responsible for seeing the bigger picture of the parish. Whereas the finance council has a limited scope that deals with budget and financial matters, the work of the pastoral council embraces all the pastoral dimensions of the parish.
  • In addition to doing long range planning, the council members deal with whatever pastoral concerns the pastor brings before them.
