Our Parish Council

Pictured Are:   Lorraine Karloff (Warden), Codruta Simioanca, Shannon Laurin, Mat Pat Katsilas (Co-Treasurer), Fr. Constantine Katsilas, Council Member, John Karloff (Co-Treasurer), Dani Batres, Ron Laurin (Assistant Warden).

The Parish Council is co-responsible with the rector for the health & vibrancy of the parish. Working together they drive & inspire growth, change & development to fulfill the parish’s total mission as a Christian community.

Practical Ramifications :

  1. Stands in the stead of the parish community
  2.  “Parish Council” – not “Board of Trustees”
  3. Parish Council is NOT solely involved with the material/ “temporal”
  4.  Priest is NOT solely involved with “spiritual”
  5. Led by the priest -- collaboratively  
  6. The Priest presides over Parish Council; fully participates in decisions; has final approval of decisions
  7. Priest runs parish council & parish meetings unless he chooses to turn chair over to an appropriate leader.
  8. Consensus, whenever possible, is the desired approach to decision making.
