Parish Council Nominations

Elections will be held this spring for Parish Council representatives for our Liturgy and Sacred Arts and Christian areas. If you know parishioners who would make excellent representatives, please fill out a nomination form by April 6.

Nomination form

Parish Council members serve as an advisory group to the Pastor and assist with strategic planning, creation of effective communication structures, policies and procedures, and educating parishioners about biblical stewardship. 

Our Parish Council is composed of:

  • 6 elected members including 2 representatives each for Learning, Christian Life, and Liturgy areas,
  • 3 appointed "at large" members,
  • appointed representatives from the Finance and Development Committees,
  • 4 ex-officio members including 2 Parish Trustees, Pastor, and Managing Director.

All elected and appointed at large members serve terms of 3 years and can serve a maximum of 2 terms.  

Council members should be sensitive to the needs, ambitions and desires of The Basilica community to fulfill its mission, and through collaboration, consultation and support, serve as an advisory group to the Pastor.  The

Parish Council also responds to and acts on the recommendations of the Parish Finance Committee and Stewardship Council.
