Pastoral Council


Feeling a Call to Serve the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Pastoral Council?

The pastoral council is an advisory body working in consultation with the pastor. It is the vehicle for the parish to fulfill the pastoral mission of Jesus and the Church and engages in a continuous process of pastoral planning.

Pastoral council members serve three year terms.  Each year we discern for 4 new members.  The council meets monthly from August through June on the first Thursday of the month.

2020-2021 Pastoral Council

On August 25, 2020 Pastoral Council held a night of discernment for those who wished to consider serving on the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Pastoral Council.
