St. John Neumann Parish

Pastoral Council

The Diocese calls each parish to create a Parish Pastoral Council, which redefines the role of the previous parish councils. Rather than focusing on specific program planning and implementation, the Pastoral Council is to lead the parish community in the discernment and expression of mission.

The role of the Parish Pastoral Council is, through ongoing pastoral planning, to maintain the integrity of the parish mission and the goals and objectives related to it.

Feel free to contact any council member in person or email the council at to share your ideas or see how you can support our parish.
