What is a Parish Council?
Basically, the Parish Council acts and serves in an advisory capacity to and with the Pastor and members of the clergy of the Parish in
all matters pertaining to the spiritual, financial, and educational affairs of the parish and in the operation and management thereof.  

The Parish Council provides the pastor with the wisdom of the laity for the good of the parish.  Because of their knowledge and competence
the members of the Council are called to share with one another and with the pastor their insights honestly, with courage and prudence.  And
so, the parish is strengthened by the unity of effort achieved in reverence and charity.

The Constitution of the Advisory Council of St. Margaret Mary’s Church states:
“We do hereby unite to form a parish council according to the spirit of Vatican Council II, recognizing and affirming our communion with the
Vicar of Christ, our Holy Father, the Archbishop of our Diocese, and his representative, our Pastor,
  • To assure the transmission of the Deposit of Faith necessary for salvation.
  • To work together in the building of the Body of Christ.
  • To provide channels of communication between the clergy, laity, the Christian and secular community.
  • To engage in continuing apostolate formation of parish members.
  • To study the needs of the Christian and secular community and to work toward discovering and providing the resources to meet these needs.
  • To provide greater effectiveness in the management of the life of the parish and
  • To associate the clergy and the laity more closely in the saving mission of Christ

We ask our parishioners to contact any of the Parish Council members (see above) if you have any suggestions or concerns that should be taken
up in the Council meetings.
