Sacred Heart Parish Pastoral Council

Mission
The Council assists the Pastor in building the Sacred Heart Parish and School Family by sharing and imparting Christ’s vision of love and recognizing, identifying, inspiring and cultivating all parishioners to respond to God’s universal call to holiness through sacramental and non-sacramental life.  The Council works to build an active Parish and School Family through committees designed to engage our Sacred Heart Family liturgically, educationally,  socially and as a community outreach arm to others in need.
