Pastoral Council

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

The pastoral council is an advisory body working in consultation with the priest. 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.

Welcome 2023 - 2024 Pastoral Council Members

The Pastoral Council is asking all parishioners to prayerfully consider whether God is calling you to share your gifts with the parish by serving on the Pastoral Council.

What is the Pastoral Council?  The council is group of 12 parishioners who are the voice of the parish.  The council meets monthly with Father Joy to discuss how things are going in our parish.  What is working well in our parish?  How can the parish leadership better serve the parish?  How can we grow the parish?  Discussion of these topics, and others, typically lead to a recommendation to Father Joy.

If you would like to attend a Pastoral Council meeting to get a feel for what the meetings are like, we meet the 1st Thursday of each month.  The next meeting is on August 3rd at 6:30pm in Seton Hall.  If you have any questions or are interested in attending, please contact Dave Knoll.
