Christ the Servant Community Council

The mission of the Community Council is to empower and enable parishioners to discern and respond to their baptismal call by serving, collaborating, and mutually supporting those ministries already occurring, to encourage new ministries to form, and to ensure the communication necessary for a shared vision and responsibility in serving the physical, spiritual, social, and educational needs of parishioners and members of our neighborhood community.”

Pastoral Leadership Core Team is comprised of the Pastor, the Core Pastoral team (Pastoral leaders), and the four Pastoral Area Secretaries.  This group meets to discuss the overall vision and implementation of ministry within the parish and to ensure collaboration among the Four Pastoral Areas, especially for parish wide events.
