The Parish Council serves St. Denis by coordinating, encouraging, and promoting the apostolic, spiritual, and administrative work of our parish. Members help to set priorities and implement programs to meet our needs. The council serves as a permanent forum for constructive dialogue among all parishioners so that all priests, deacons, religious, and laity can work in close cooperation as a Christian community to fulfill the mission of Christ.
Parish Finance Council
The pastor is required by Church law to have members of the parish act as advisors to him regarding the fiscal organization of the parish. Acting as a consultative body to the pastor, they work with him to review our financial reports and oversee our expenses and investments. Working closely with the pastor they oversee any new plans for St. Denis and their fiscal impact on our parish.
The Catholic Church requires that the Pastor have two members of the parish community to act as advisors to him. The trustees are consulted on important issues and developments that are taking place in the parish. Usually one man and one woman are chosen by the pastor to serve as trustees for a period of two years.
