Pastoral Council

St. Jude Thaddeus Parish is currently comprised of nineteen volunteers who were appointed by parish members that serve in a ministry of the parish.  Presently, the Pastoral Council is made up of at least two mass representatives from each mass and two at-large representatives, deacons of our parish and Fr. Tien-Tri Nguyen.

The Council’s Purpose is established for the benefit of our pastor, our fellow parishioners and the ministries of St. Jude Thaddeus Catholic Church by providing an open heart and path for communication, guidance and planning our growing Catholic community.

The Council will work with the Pastor, the clergy, parishioners, and the church office staff. It will assist the Pastor in defining the needs for the good of the parish by accomplishing the following Pastoral Council’s mission statement. 

The Pastoral Council offers a forum for dialogue and communication between the Pastor and the parishioners.  

 “We, the Council members of St. Jude Thaddeus Parish feel that we have been called upon to support our faith by giving our time, talent and spiritual gifts. We feel it is our calling to be of service to our Lord, to continue in his grace and to serve his church, and our community.  We want to see our parish grow in ways that will continuously welcome new parishioners, while simultaneously meet the needs of our spiritual growth to our existing parishioners.” 

The Pastoral Council meets monthly, the last Wednesday of the month, at 7:00 p.m. in the parish office.  We will keep you up-to-date regarding issues we are addressing. For more information or to contact a council member if you should have an issue that you wish to bring to the attention of the Pastoral Council, please contact any Pastoral Council member by e-mailing pastoralcouncil1@gmail.com. E-mails will be reviewed on a weekly basis and our response will be addressed accordingly ASAP or within the month and/or at our monthly meeting.  Thank you. 

“O Holy Spirit, Divine Spirit of Light, Truth, and Love, to you we consecrate our understanding, hearts, wills and whole beings, in time and eternity. May our understanding always be submissive to your heavenly inspirations and to the teaching of the Holy Church of which you are the infallible Guide.”  AMEN
