† Member Openings - 2013-2016 Term
Interested in Joining the Pastoral Council?
The San Antonio Pastoral Council is accepting applications for the next term beginning September 2013- 2016.
The San Antonio Pastoral Council supports our parish mission statement, "…We find our identity and mission in Jesus Christ and His Gospel. We celebrate our life as Catholic Christians in word, worship and service…"
The Pastoral Council is a visioning body assessing where the parish is today and where we need to go. We discern what we should be doing, explore new ideas, and speak for the Parish in an advisory capacity to our Pastor. Each year the Council acts, in a participatory manner, as a representative voice of all parishioners and supports the Pastor in his administration of the Parish.
These tasks are ongoing. We are in need of individuals who are committed to continuing these projects. If this leadership ministry strikes a chord with you and you feel that you might like to share your time and talent, please consider joining us.
The Pastoral Council meets monthly from September through June. Requirements include; be a registered member of San Antonio Catholic Church in good standing for a minimum of two years; be actively involved in at least one parish ministry; and be willing to serve for a minimum of three years. You only need a desire to serve, a prayerful disposition and some time. You will be heard, meet wonderful people and increase your knowledge of, and living in, your faith.
We are seeking five new members to represent the entire spectrum of parishioners. With a three-year commitment, we always have a good mix of experience and fresh ideas. In late April and early May, interviews will be held to determine the new members to be inducted in June. If you feel called to explore further, you can talk to a council member, contact the parish office at (714) 974-1416 or contact Kate MacGregor by e-mail NanaKateMac@att.net or phone (714) 281-1112.
An application is available online or can be sent to you by email or regular mail. Please seriously consider this discernment and join us. For more information on Pastoral Council please view our link on the web site www.sanantoniochurch.org. Click on "Our Parish" then scroll to "Pastoral Council".
What is Pastoral Council?
The Pastoral Council is a representative group of parishioners that assists the pastor in stimulating a devout and Christian way of life through projects and events, develops goals and recommended methods in which the parish can implement them (the Pastoral Plan), and evaluates requests for new ministries. We need your input, thoughts and dedication to keep the Pastoral Council solid and effective.
