Parish Leadership Councils & Committees

Pastoral Council provides a significant way for lay Catholics to be involved in the parish. Pastoral Council’s role is to be involved in the overall planning process, both near and long-term, of the parish community. The Pastoral Council works and communicates with other ministries as well as the Pastor to implement and evaluate the parish mission and vision. It represents the people of the parish on specific needs as they arise and advises the Pastor in meeting those needs. The Pastoral Council undertakes these responsibilities functioning as a prayerful, faith-sharing community of the members. Council meetings are held monthly.

The Finance Council is an advisory body of nine appointed parishioners who meet to assist the pastor in the stewardship of the parish finances relative to the Sunday Offertory Collection.  The members review the financial statements of the church and school; prepare an annual budget; review the proposed school budget prepared by the School Council; consider major needs as presented by the parish staff, Pastoral Council, School Council, and Maintenance Committee, and advise the pastor as to their feasibility; and  oversee the total fundraising efforts of the parish and school.  Members meet monthly. Parishioners with a financial background are especially encouraged.

The Maintenance Committee explores the needs of the St. Aloysius physical campus. We investigate, recommend and advise on procedures, alterations, and equipment installations, which in a significant way affect the building or property. They prioritize the needs and establish a time line for making repairs and completing projects. For larger projects, they consult with the Finance Council and Pastoral Council for advice on funding such projects. The meetings are on the 2nd Tuesday of the month in the Parish Center at 7:00 PM.

Parish Development is the involvement of people in the mission and vision of our parish. We are a group who develops and executes both short-term and long-term action plans. Implementation Teams include the six areas of: (1) Administration and Finance, (2) Faith Formation, (3) Liturgy and Worship, (4) Outreach, (5) Parish Life, and (6) Stewardship and Development. If you are interested in being involved in shaping the future of your parish, please contact the parish office.
