Parish Council 2016

The Parish Council is a body of practicing Orthodox Christians in good sacramental standing with the Church. They are elected members of the parish for the purpose of working together with the Priest in fulfilling the goals and needs of the Church and preserving the Apostolic tradition. This local governing body also reflects the fundamental structure of the Orthodox Church. They who have the honor and privilege of serving the Church of Christ through service on Parish Councils hold a special trust and duty.  These matters are the foundations for the Council’s support of the Priest in his role as the Bishop’s representative to the Parish and for the continuation of the Faith and to serving Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.


  1. Be in contact with the ministry leader at least once per month.
