Saint Agnes Catholic Community Governance

LINK TO BOARD/COUNCIL MEMBERSHIP

The healthy success of any community relies on the active participation and wise leadership of its members.  From its earliest days as a parish, St. Agnes CC has had wise, pragmatic and dedicated parishioners who stepped forward- sometimes asked, sometimes moved to volunteer, sometimes summoned- to work with the pastor and the diocese to create and maintain a parish that provided its members with liturgy, pastoral care, education and opportunities for ministry.  The Finance Council, Pastoral Council, Faith Formation Board and Academy Board provide governance at St. Agnes.
