Four Parish Councils

Every couple of months, the four councils of the four parishes meet. 

Recommendations from 2011 study conduction by the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas states

  1. Continue to improve communication and coordination between the parishes. The utilization of the four parish stewardship committee is a meaningful way to do this. This stewardship committee may develop into an area or cluster pastoral council made up of members from individual parish councils. The area or cluster council should be engaged in visioning, ministry planning and matters of strategic significance to make the best use of financial and human resources, coordinate ministry, eliminate duplication, and make parish programs and services available for all Catholics yet under the care of one priest.
  2. Make efforts toward helping parishioners feel more a part of each other's parish. Build a better understanding that individual parishes are not the Church, rather embrace all the parishes as the Church.
