The purpose of the St. Alexius, Our Lady of the Angels, and St. Paul’s Pastoral Council is threefold:

1. To be the primary body of the faithful for the pastor to consult for pastoral direction within the cluster of the three parishes.

2. To study, pray, listen, and act upon the inspirations of the Holy Spirit as a way to further the mission of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church in each parish and in the cluster.

3. To work together for the greatest pastoral good of each parish and of the cluster. There are elections each spring for open positions to this council. Each term is 3 years.

The Finance Council assists with the responsible oversight of the parish’s resources. They review and approve the annual parish budget, monitor the budget throughout the fiscal year, advise the pastor in financial matters, and ensure that the parish remains current with its obligations to the parish employees, parish vendors, and diocesan organizations, including the payment of assessments, insurance premiums, retirement premiums and payroll taxes. This is an appointed position.
