Many of our parishioners are already involved in our community. With our increasing growth as a church in size and talented gifts, we are all called to be a part of our Church community and our surrounding community in Amherst County.
Pastoral Council – The Pastoral Council develops support to the parish. It reflects the unique personality of the parish as it evolves, using the mission statement developed by the parishioners.
Finance Council – The Council provides financial support and advises the pastor and the parish about the annual budget and other decisions regarding the financial business of the parish. Members are appointed by the priest.
Social Outreach – The mission of this ministry is to respond to the needs of the poor, deprived, neglected, oppressed, and sick and shut-ins of the parish and the community at large. This committee also helps parishioners become more aware of the social needs of the community.
Christian Education – The Christian Education Committee is responsible for planning and providing educational activities and events for the children and adults of our church family.
Liturgical Ministry (Worship) – This committee is responsible for planning, implementing and evaluating parish prayer and worship in accordance with diocesan policies and directions. The priest and the Music Minister must be members of this committee. The planning of the Liturgy for all seasons of the year and the planning of special liturgical events are the responsibilities of this committee. Good Liturgy takes prayer, thought and preparation. This committee gathers to plan and implement ideas to enhance our worship experiences.
Other Committees, Councils and Ministries – Planning and Development Committee, Parish Community Life Committee, Parish Grounds and Maintenance Committee.
All in all, we are pleased and proud to be in this formation stage of a resource that will offer material not only for religious education, but also enriching material of spiritual guidance and knowledge for all classifications of church membership.
