This Council serves as a "seat of wisdom" for the Pastor, Staff, Parish Council and Parish family. They connect us with our history, customs and culture. They advise, challenge, correct and encourage us as a community of faith.

They perform a variety of important services for the Parish:


  • Meet quarterly with the Pastor to provide personal counsel, give input and direction based on experience and wisdom

  • Blessing of the homilist/preacher

  • Gives the "Elder's Blessing" at the sacraments of Baptism and Matrimony
