The Pastoral Council provides an essential framework and leadership of joining the people of God to fulfill the mission of the church. Members on the Council are appointed and can be elected by the parish at large. The Council meets bi-monthly. Only Catholics in good standing are eligible for membership.

The Finance Council assists the Pastor in the administration of temporal goods of the parish, including finances and parish property. This consultative group supports the mission of the parish by assuring that we are good stewards of our time, talent and treasure, putting them in service to the work of the Church.
Parish Vocation Committee
The Parish Vocation Committee’s goals are to pray for vocations, to arrange programs and presentations on vocation awareness and to encourage parents, teachers and friends to seek out and support those who might be contemplating a religious calling. The Committee also prays for, assists and encourages those who have already answered God’s call to a religious vocation.
The purpose of the Pro-Life Committee is to foster respect for all life from conception to natural death. Our aim is to make the Good Shepherd family more aware of this vital concern. A series of publicized events throughout the year are available to parishioners.
Shortly after new parishioners register, they will receive a phone call from the Committee to welcome them to the parish and periodic receptions for new parishioners will be held. There is always a need for more Welcoming Committee members.
