Accepting the challenge to follow Jesus and share God-given talents with each other in all we do. As a parish, we are called to “practice what we preach” and we encourage all to participate in some way.
Building and Grounds Committee
Part of our stewardship responsibility includes taking care of the parish’s physical plant. Parishioners with backgrounds in contracting, architecture, electrical background, facility management and maintenance engineering volunteer their expertise and help us properly maintain the church building and grounds. This committee helps plan long-term capital improvements as well as assists in the request and review of proposals for major repairs. This group is always considering ways to ”Go Green.” If you are interested in being a part of this dynamic group, please contact Jerry Baumberger at 952-831-2516; or Ron Schmidt at 952-831-0880.
A vital ministry and part of the Building and Grounds Committee, the Lock-up Crew is responsible for securing the building at night after all the programs of the day have been completed. This committee is made up of 14 teams with each team making a minimal time commitment. We always welcome new members. To get involved, contact Bill Bach at 952-843-3781.
The Finance Council serves as an advisory body to support the pastor in his stewardship of parish financial resources. It monitors the parish’s financial strength, accounting procedures, and internal controls. In addition to reviewing the parish’s monthly financial statement, the Finance Council also participates in the preparation of the parish’s annual operating budget, the Annual Report and financial reporting to the Archdiocese.
The money counters is a group of dedicated parishioners who count the parish’s treasure every weekend. They are divided into six teams who alternate weekends.
The Parish Council (PC) has two parts. It is 1): a decision-making body that guides the many wonderful ministries of our parish and 2): a visioning body that assists the pastor and staff in administration of the parish. The role of our Parish Council is to be the visioning group that answers the question: “Where are we going?”
