Parish Pastoral Council

Saint Stephen Parish Pastoral Council


We, the parish of St. Stephen, will carry out the mission of Jesus Christ as a welcoming, worshiping, Catholic Community by sharing, growing, and living the Gospel.

What is the Parish Pastoral Council?

The parish pastoral council is a "collegial" structure that touches the lives of the parish community where the Pastor, staff, and laity come together to carry forward the mission and ministry of Christ and his Church in the parish community.
