Who are we? We are YOUR voice - St John's Parish Council is comprised of 2 representatives from the Worship, Outreach, Evangelization & Catechesis and Stewardship & Community Life Pillars; a representative from the Finance and Property Boards and the School Advisory Council.


What we do? St John's Parish Council Members act as a bridge between the pillars they represent to the council who then reports to the parish community. Parish Council represent every parishioner at St John's and encourage you to voice your ideas, thoughts, concerns and questions!


When and where do we meet? St John's Parish Council meets on the last Thursday of every month beginning in August and concluding in June. All members of St John's are welcome to attend the meeting. Our next meeting is June 28 at 7:00 pm in the Council Room. Please join us!


Got a question? Submit your thoughts, concerns and/or questions to Parish Council! We want to know what you have to say. We are One Body in Christ. God’s Word became flesh, so God’s wisdom dwells in each one of us. The only way to build up and unify the body is to consult its members.
