Committee Guidelines

Each fiscal year, starting in July, the Pastor and Business Manager develop goals and objectives for the Administration Committee. Also, committee members are recruited for a three-year term. A Chair is elected annually, with a vice-chair who will be the chair the following year. The current chair moves to a “Past Chair” role as a committee member.

The team is responsible for developing a tactical process for taking a concept, or idea, from conception to implementation. The committee does not usually implement a project, but recommends the steps, staffing, timeline, etc. for critical processes to ensure the success of the project.

The Council is responsible for reporting updates from the sub-committees to the Parish Council. The Administration Chair serves as a member of the Parish Council reporting status of the committee and sub-committees, and takes input from the Parish at large to the Administration committee and/or sub-committees.

The committee meets in person at least quarterly, and we are currently meeting every other month. The meetings are the third Tuesday of the second month from 6-7:30 pm in the Parish Office Conference. Other meetings are set as needed.

Members of the Administration Committee are selected and invited by the Pastor. Each member will serve a three-year term and will rotate off the committee.
