Through prayerful consultation and dialogue, the Pastoral Council establishes the parish mission, vision and goals. They oversee, in cooperation with the Pastor, the programs and organizations which are designed to implement these goals.
The Council is comprised of 6 actively practicing members of the parish who are elected by the parish members to a three-year term of service. The ex-officio members of the Council are the Priest and Trustees.
All members of the parish are welcome to attend Pastoral Council meetings or to contact council members with questions or suggestions.
Please watch the bulletin for Pastoral Council meeting dates.
If any parishioner has a question or suggestion regarding St. Joseph Church, please contact one of the council members:
Doug Kotecki – President
Patti Behrens – Vice Chair
Laura Leigh – Secretary
Terry Dickinson – Secretary Trustee
Rob Chapados – Treasurer Trustee
