Parish Councils

Councils are crucial for the running of a parish, because they represent the voices of both the people and the leadership, providing direction, critical evaluation, and dedication to our mission. We have two main councils that serve our parish community and advise our pastor.

Finance Council

The Finance Council is consultative to the pastor in areas relating to administrative, financial, facilities, development, and accounting, for the entire parish. The Finance Council is distinct from the Pastoral Council but interacts with them to most effectively fulfill its responsibilities.

Pastoral Council

The St. Andrew Pastoral Council exists as the chief consultative body to our pastor on essential elements of parish life. As members of the living Body of Christ, and alert to voices in the whole community, we seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit to make recommendations by consensus, through prayer and discernment.

We strive to carry out the will of Our Heavenly Father as taught in word and example.  Guided by the Holy Spirit we will foster and provide enlightenment and theological opportunities for our parishioners.
