SFDS > About the Parish > Pastoral Council

The Pastoral Council is a collaborative and consulting body which meets once a month with the Pastor to provide an open, honest, and respectful forum of communication and dialogue regarding parish affairs.

Meetings are held at 7 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each month in meeting room#1.  Members of the church are invited to attend. It is possible that the council meetings may change so please check with a member of the Parish Council Executive Committee to confirm the date and time if you plan to attend.
