Terry, Paul Rotzenberg, Beth Rydeski, Ken Keefer, Renee Martin, Johhn Howard, Dave Vanness, Tri Le, Bob Mihm, Pat Boyer, Bernie Farrell, Lan Dang, Deacon Chuck, Katie Delemont, Mike Karolewicz
When parishioners make a financial commitment the parish can budget in a fiscally responsible way for all the programs and services needed to help members grow in their faith. The third Tuesday of the month the finance committee members meet to review the parish budget.
Parish trustees are elected directors of the parish corporation. They assist the pastor in the day-to-day administration of the parish and are members of parish leadership. Trustees assist in matters affecting church and civil law such as the financial and real estate matters of the parish. Trustees serve two-year terms. Current trustees: Robert Mihm and Patrick Boyer
Members profess to practice good stewardship of the gifts God has given, including time, talent, and treasure. Each year we take time to look at how we have used these gifts and how we will use them to foster God's work in the coming year. Parishioners are asked to make a commitment of his/her time, talent, and treasure in service to others and the parish.
This group telephones newly registered parishioners, welcoming them to the parish and answering any questions they may have.
