SS. John and Paul Parish Structure
SS. John and Paul Parish’s structure connects lay leaders, staff, and the pastor in a collaborative model of partnership and shared decision-making and leadership. There are five commissions: Worship, Formation, Administration, Community, and Outreach. These commissions are responsible for setting goals as well as providing planning, direction, and evaluation for their area of parish ministry. All of the parish ministries are part of one of the Commissions.
Each Commission consists of 7 to 9 people. Each Commission has two members serving as co-chairs, two members serving on the Pastoral Council, and one or two staff members assigned as a liaison resource.
The Pastoral Council consists of two people from each Commission, the Pastor, Parochial Vicar, Deacon, and PAR Coordinator. The Pastoral Council explores the core values and essential elements of the parish, provides the common direction or focus for the parish, establishes goals for the parish, coordinates and holds accountable the five Commissions, directs the decision-making to appropriate groups or individuals, and works with the pastor in handling parish crises.
The Commissions and Pastoral Council have a common leadership night, meeting on the third Thursday night of the month.
