Finance Council

The purpose of Saint Kateri’s Finance Council is to assist and advise the pastor and parish administrator in overseeing and controlling the financial affairs of the parish.  The Finance Council consists of a diversified group of parishioners with a wide variety of relevant business and financial experience.  They meet monthly to review parish income and expenses, the annual budget, fundraising activities, and the financial aspects and overall progress of the parish’s financial status.

Pastoral Council

Pastors establish councils because they seek practical advice on pastoral matters. They believe that God's Spirit speaks through their people. They consult their councils because they want to know what is wise and prudent.  Outside experts cannot judge what is best for a particular parish, because they are not part of it. Councils offer what no expert can offer: a judgment about what is right for a particular parish.  That is the pastor's primary motive for having a council.

The Hospitality Ministry provides food and fellowship following Mass and other events.  They serve the parish by providing a space where people can connect, share stories, and build community.
