Pastoral Council

St. Benedict Catholic Church has an active and energetic Parish Pastoral Council. The council  is a consultative body that:

  •     Advises the Parish Director on the development of parish pastoral priorities
  •     Identifies pastoral needs
  •     Assists the Parish Director with planning pastoral programs to coordinate and carry out the apostolic work of the laity
  •     Represents the needs of the parishioners.


Each year, three members of the Pastoral Council are replaced by three new members.  Due to a move, this year we have four openings to fill in the Pastoral Council.  Applications are accepted through June 5, 2017.  Prayerfully consider serving St. Benedict's in this vital position.  An application can be found here.  

We'd Like To Hear From You

Do you have an idea, a suggestion, a concern, or some feedback to share with St. Benedict's? If so, we would like to hear from you.

Use this form to send us your idea, concern, suggestion, feedback. Our Pastoral Council encourages and welcomes your feedback.
