The Pastoral Council is the chief instrument through which the clergy, staff and lay members of the parish community cooperate with the Holy Spirit in fulfilling our mission. Elected Council members are chosen in the spring. Some members are appointed by the Pastor. Council members coordinate all parish ministries and organizations. Since Holy Spirit is a Stewardship parish, the Pastoral Council helps coordinate the gifts of time and talent of our generous parishioners.
The Parish Finance Council advises and assists the Pastor in administering the financial affairs and the physical plant management of the parish. Members of the Council, all appointed by the pastor, are involved in the preparation of the annual budget and any in necessary fund-raising efforts, including the Bishop’s Appeal. They oversee both the maintenance of the parish plant and the planning of capital improvements. In addition to its regular offertory collection, Holy Spirit receives contributions to its Building and Renovation Fund. These areas of giving allow our parishioners to live our stewardship of treasure.
