Parish Council

To serve on the Parish Council is a ministry and a mission.   The Parish Council consists of the Priest, and the elected lay members who represent the parish and the Orthodox Christian faith.  The mission of the Parish Council – is “… to keep, practice and proclaim the Orthodox Christian Faith pure and undefiled.” One of the identifying traits of the Orthodox Church is that we are conciliar – decisions are made in council.  In the Oath of Office, each parish council member affirms that they “…will fulfill faithfully and sincerely the duties and obligations required of a member of the Parish Council….” The promise is a shared commitment of all council members to serve the Church, which is the Body of Christ on earth.
