Parish Commissions

Parish Ministries and Organizations are divided into 4 Commissions:

 

Inserted Image

The Spirituality/Worship Commission encourages the work of sanctification/growth in holiness, through worship, renewal opportunities, vocations, ministry of care/outreach to shut-ins, etc.  This group helps to realize the broader vision of the significance of evangelization for the life and mission of the parish. 

 

Parish Life

The Parish Life Commission helps build community and foster a sense of belonging. Its members are  concerned, interested and sensitive to the communal/social needs of the parish and special groups within the parish. They help promote communication between organizations, coordinate activities and events, and bring freshness of vision into parish organizations.

 

Human Concerns

The Human Concerns Commission enables parishioners as individuals and as members of groups that help others with their human needs. They are about fulfilling the social, ecumenical, interreligious and service mission of the parish. Members help people understand and act upon the conviction that social justice and concern for others is constitutive of the Gospel message.

 

Education and Formation

The Education & Formation Commission promotes education, especially religious education, of all members of the parish. They provide leadership and direction in the field of Catholic Education. They foster collaboration among the various educational entities, and insure the parish mission and goals guide the ongoing work of each parish educational entity.

Commission Goals:


1. To work toward accomplishing the parish goals identified through the Prophetic Plan.

 

2. To take those goals back to their ministries/organizations, so they, too, can take action to respond to the goals.

A representative from each of the 4 Commissions serves on the Parish Pastoral Council, bringing their insights, shared wisdom, and experience to the conversation.
