The Parish Finance Committee is responsible for establishing the budget, monitoring finances and upkeep of the church property. Current members of IHM’s Finance Committee are Anne Marcoux, Roger Arsenault, Gil Mulligan, Juanita Jenson, John Coughlan.
Each of our four churches has a Local Parish Council (LPC). This is a leadership group, made up of parishioners who work closely with Father Phil and are involved in the day-to-day ministry of their church. Local Parish Councils discuss everything from Stewardship Fairs to Parish Outreach initiatives to Baptism Formation (and everything in between)!
Led by Father Phil, current LPC members are:
Holy Family – Arlene Burlock, Gerard Collins, Mary Helena Delahunt, Carolyn Kyle, Dee Lakey, Nicole McNichol, Mick Standing, Doug Wilson
Holy Ghost – Teresa O’Hara
Immaculate Heart of Mary – Jim Baker, Wayne Bennett, Roberta Brine (Chair), Yvonne Comeau, Juanita Jensen, Maurise Levesque, Mark Mahoney, Colleen Murphy, Brodie Phaneuf (Youth Rep), and Bill Taylor
St. Jude’s – Mary Anne Griffin, Gary Griffin, Paul Langelaan, Pat Ross, Geraline VanAgten
All four groups together, combine to create the Regional Parish Council (RPC).
At each church, this is the committee responsible for overseeing the maintenance and repair of the parish buildings and associated equipment. Where practical, the work is done by the committee members, otherwise it is hired out. Are you handy? Do you enjoy projects and repair work? This committee is important to the support of each parish and to protect the investments of parishioners. The work is rewarding and long-lasting!
At Immaculate Heart of Mary, we have Anne Marcoux, Al Daly, Howard Doucette, Brendan Gallant, Paul Perkison and Tom Cooney on our Maintenance Committee.
At St. Jude’s, we are blessed to have Reg Martin and Stephen Quinn on our Maintenance Committee with John Drisdelle for groundskeeping at the Church and Cemetery.
If you are willing and have some skills in practical maintenance, please call the office and join the team at your parish!
