Pastoral Council

The  Pastoral Council of Saint Jude is a representative body which advises the Pastor and makes recommendations on matters related to the achievement of the Parish Mission Statement. The purpose of the council is to serve in an advisory role to the Pastor, to help the parish resolve issues which cannot be decided through other means, and to provide a means through which parishioners may communicate regarding the administration of the parish.
