Invitation to apply for St. John’s Pastoral Council




This year, the Council is recruiting four parishioners to serve the parish as council members.


The mission of the Pastoral Council is to help unite the parishioners, parish staff, and clergy in a community of prayer, study, leadership, service, and pastoral action.  We are a vibrant parish blessed with 2,700 registered families, a school, and over 60 different commissions, committees, ministries, and auxiliary organizations. The Pastoral Council meets once a month and during that time, the Council hears from each of those groups throughout the year while also focusing on coordinating annual pastoral goals for the parish, addressing pastoral needs within the parish structure, and facilitating communication between parish organizations. We have been personally humbled by the dedication and commitment of St. John’s faith in action.
