Pastoral Council

The Pastoral Council Members of St. Joseph Parish are:

The Pastoral Council Members of St. Joseph Parish are: Patrick Feeney, Jim Kmiec, Alex Kostelnik, Salvador Martinez,  Tony Oss, Kandi Porter, and Quentin Wadle.

The Purpose of a Pastoral Council: The Second Vatican Council affirmed the laity’s participation in the mission of Jesus Christ by challenging all of the baptized with a call to holiness, to ministry and to community.  The theology of shared responsibility and collaboration between the laity and the ordained, that flows from the Vatican II documents, provides a foundation for the Pastoral Council.  The pastoral activity of the Council embraces the mission and ministry of the Church, through worship and prayer, proclaiming the Gospel and teaching, social justice, care of the poor, the sick and the dying, an bringing God’s healing power to all.  

Structure: The membership of the Parish Pastoral Council is composed of 12 lay members and the Pastor.  The Pastoral Council, in collaboration with parish members, develops a parish plan that will meet the spiritual and pastoral needs of the parishioners.  The Council implements the parish plan through the work of the following five Commissions. 

  • The Education and Formation Commission
  • The Spirituality/Worship Commission
  • The Parish Life Commission
  • The Peace & Social Justice Commission
  • The Stewardship/Administration Commission

Terms: Council Member - 3 years.

             Chairperson - 2 years.
