The St. Mary Parish Pastoral Council is a consultative body that serves to advise the pastor about pastoral issues. The Pastoral Council meets once a month to help me see the wider scope of parish pastoral needs. The Council meeting agendas are grounded in the results of our 2014 parish visioning exercise—that flowed from an extensive listening campaign,”Listening to St. Mary.” Every member brings their own talents and skills to the table in order to help our pastor, Father Michael, make the best decisions that will bring life and growth to our St. Mary community. We thank them for their service. All are encouraged to contact me or any of the Pastoral Council members with any ideas, concerns or affirmations. Below are their names and contact information.
