Parish Pastoral Council

 

PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL

 

In the spirit of Vatican II, St. Pius X has established a parish pastoral council.  This body shares responsibility with the pastor for the vision, planning and decision making required for the parish.  It provides a channel for dialogue between parish members and the pastor.  Each council member serves on one of the parish commissions or on the deanery council or as a member of the executive committee.  Nine members are elected for three-year terms, three each year, and three members are appointed for one-year terms.  The Council meets on the second Tuesday of each month, September through June, at 7:00 p.m. in Pastors Hall. 

All meetings are open to parish members.  The members of the Pastoral Council for the 2017-2018 year are: Deb Owen (chair), Kate Getty (vice-chair), Kay Jackson (secretary) Erin Altheide, Terri Christoffersen, Denny Waldron, Dave Schillig, Jeff Miller, Cori Butkowski, Dan Stabile, Deb Downey, Ron Gielau,  and Father Thompson.
