Parish Pastoral Council

Our Parish Pastoral Council, along with Msgr. Robert Dempsey, serves our parish family. The principal task of the Parish Council is to represent the entire parish in assessing parish needs and in developing plans for the future. Members of the Parish Council represent a cross section of the parish and are asked to make a strong commitment to work as a team to provide direction for our parish. Members serve three-year terms. The Council meets on the second Monday of the months from September to June. Anyone interested in joining the Parish Pastoral Council should contact Chris Kelley at

But Jesus summoned them and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and the great ones make their authority over them felt.  But it shall not be so among you. Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave."  

-Matthew 20:25-27
