At each of our churches, the Parish Finance Committee is responsible for establishing the budget and monitoring finances and upkeep of church property. If you have any questions at all about the Finance Committee at your church, please call our Business Manager, Anne Marcoux at the parish office.
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 who 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 as Pastor and Mark Mahoney as Pastoral Associate, current LPC members are:
Holy Family – Louis Bourque, Arlene Burlock, Winston d’Souza, Carolyn Kyle, Polly Mulligan, Nicole McNichol, Angela Ricker, Cyril Sutherland and Doug Wilson (Chair)
Holy Ghost – Teresa O’Hara
Immaculate Heart of Mary – Jim Baker, Wayne Bennett, Roberta Brine (Chair), Yvonne Comeau, Juanita Jensen, Maurise Levesque, Colleen Murphy, and Bill Taylor
St. Jude’s – Mary Anne Griffin, Gary Griffin, Annette Radke, Luke McMackin and John Drisdelle
All four groups together, combine to create the Regional Parish Council (RPC). The RPC Chairperson is Roberta Brine.
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!
If you are willing and have some skills in practical maintenance, please call the office and join the team at your parish!
