Parish Pastoral Council

 The agenda and minutes from each Pastoral Council can be found below.

On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, the Pastoral Council adopted the Parish’s 2016-2021 Goals and Objectives.  An original draft of the goals and objectives was based on a survey of the Parish that had almost 300 Parishioners respond.  The entire Parish was invited to review the draft statements prior to adoption. Eight parishioners representing our various ministries responded with comments and suggestions that were used in the formation of the final document.  Thus, the goals and objectives posted below truly represent the Parish’s vision for our future.  Paper copies are also available through the Parish Office.  Contact Maury James at 301-432-2549 or

As the Parish moves forward to implement these goals, the Pastoral Council invites all Parishioners to actively support the committees and councils needed for the Parish to succeed.   Each parishioner has a talent that can make the difference in someone’s life.  You are encouraged to join your fellow parishioners in making these dreams a reality.
