Pastoral Council

Purpose

Our Pastoral Council meets monthly to advise our pastor on matters of significance for parish life and help plan and coordinate ministries and services. Basically, the Council serves as an interactive, engaged, and committed focus group that also communicates options and decisions with parishioners.

Six members of the Council are elected by parishioners; three members are appointed by the pastor.

Members: Our Council members are elected or appointed for a three-year term. Elections are held in November, and all parishioners are eligible both to vote and to be elected.

Pastoral Plan

This is the Pastoral Plan for St. Ignatius approved by Bishop Madden.

The Pastoral Council and many others in the parish have labored and prayed over this manifesto to articulate what Jesuits call “our way of proceeding.”

We ask our parishioners to study and pray over our guiding principles, our vision, and our sacred purpose. In these statements, you will find what we believe, who we are, and who we are striving to become.

From these statements flow what we are doing, and how we are doing it.
