Parish Council

Each of our parishes is part of a larger whole, the communion of the Archdiocese of Detroit, which, in turn, is part of the Church Universal.  The Archdiocese is composed of over 300 parishes and missions, each with its own unique history.  Our parishes are as diverse as the very physical surroundings in which they are located. Ultimately, our parishes find their center and purpose in the Eucharistic communion, where we have the highest and fullest expression of our identity as a communion of faith.  

The Parish Council encourages the sharing of gifts and resources so that we will be able to hear and proclaim the Gospel, worship and reach out to the community in service.  It serves to support the commissions in the areas of education, service, stewardship and worship.

The Parish Council is an advisory body to the Pastor and the standing commissions (Christian Service, Faith Formation and Worship) of the parish

The role of the Parish Council is to be sensitive to the movement of the spirit among God's people, to work for a unified vision or general consensus among its members, and to help the whole parish to meet the challenge of being a church in the modern world.
