PARISH COUNCIL

Starting September 6th, St. Christopher's will begin the process of electing new parish council members. The purpose of the Parish Council is to offer advice and counsel to the pastor thus helping him identify pastoral need in the parish. As directed by the pastor, the Parish Council works to discern a set of goals for the parish and facilitate their implementation.


Some Parish Council members are appointed and some are automatically included due to their ministry role but most members are elected by the parish for a two year term. All members vote. To qualify, a candidate must be a participating member of the parish and a Catholic in good standing with the norms of the Catholic Church. Prayerfully consider serving on the council. 


Nomination forms will be available for online submission,
download, or paper submission in the coming weeks. Check the bulletin and website for more details to come. Elections will be held on October 11th and 12th after masses.
