Parish Pastoral Council
Pastor – Father Sajo Jacob
Deacon – Dan Deck
Chairperson – June
It is recognized that the Pastor has full responsibility for the parish as delegated by the Archbishop. The role of the Parish Pastoral Council is to be supportive to the Pastor and provide all assistance helpful to his office.
Members of PPC (Parish Pastoral Council) attend Council meetings held on the third Tuesday of each month, unless otherwise determined by the Council. They may also participate in the activities of various committees.
Parish Pastoral Council meetings are open to parishioners who are invited to attend as observers. In addition, an Annual General Meeting for all members of the parish is on a yearly basis. At this time the activities of the past year are reviewed, significant plans for the future are proposed and the membership and structure of the Council for the coming year is confirmed.
