The Parish Leadership Council members (Pastoral, Finance, Liturgy Committee) are the representatives who serve as leaders of the parish and keep in mind the mission and vision of St. Joseph.
The members work closely with the staff and each other to develop, implement and achieve the Church and parish mission. They recommend operating practices and guidelines in ministry and administratively to the pastor. It is a structure based on strong, lay leadership that recognizes the gifts of parishioners. The heart of this structure is the collaboration between lay leadership and the pastor.Parish Pastoral Council
