Local Parish Councils (LPC) and Regional Parish Council (RPC)

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 – Louis Bourque, Arlene Burlock, Winston d’Souza, Carolyn Kyle, Mark Mahoney, 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, Mark Mahoney, Colleen Murphy, Brodie Phaneuf (Youth Rep), and Bill Taylor

St. Jude’s – Mary Anne Griffin, Gary Griffin, Paul Langelaan, Pat Ross and Geraline VanAgten

All four groups together, combine to create the Regional Parish Council (RPC).


Parish Maintenance Committee

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!


Stewardship Committee

All of the teachings of Stewardship come directly from the Gospels.  Stewardship is not a new word, but rather it is the way God has expected His people to live since the beginning of time.  It means realizing that everything we have is a gift from God and so living a life of gratitude for those gifts.  Stewardship is essentially giving back – returning a portion of our gifts to God.  Our Stewardship Teams are looking for positive, sharing people who realize that we all have gifts given to us by God and that these gifts need to be cultivated,  celebrated, shared and enjoyed!  If you would like to become part of parish stewardship, please contact the office!
