The Parish Pastoral Council, which was formed in 2009 by Fr. Steve Sallot, pastor from 2002-2013, is a consultative body consisting of twelve members which strives to discern the movement of the Holy Spirit among God’s people in the parish. The Council develops and recommends parish pastoral plans and directions through a consensus process and prayerful reflection.
Over the last two years, the Pastoral Council has advised on such things as the Mass schedule change in 2014, the further integration of San Felipe Chapel and St. Edward the Confessor Church, the reorganization of the parish preschool and elementary school, the renovation of the church, plant management considerations, parish communication approaches, parish ministry planning, and a strategic outreach plan.
The council’s membership is reflective of the parish’s rich diversity. The twelve current council members include men and women, young and old, new and long-term parishioners, married and single people, parish school parents and Faith Formation parents, and those who primarily attend San Felipe and others who attend St. Edward the Confessor Church.
