Since 1972, St. Joseph Catholic Church has had an active Pastoral Council.  The Council provides a forum for discussion and consultation regarding parish life among the staff and parishioners.  After reflecting upon and revising the parish mission statement when necessary, it establishes yearly goals for the parish.  Through a committee structure, it also monitors and adopts the annual budget and acts as a steward for parish resources.

The council is made up of 9 elected delegates, three appointed delegates, and the chairpersons of the standing committees.  Pastoral staff members are also members with voice, but without votes.  The elected delegates are your representatives, if you have concerns or questions about Jt. Joseph Parish, please do not hesitate to contact them, as they need to hear from you.  The Council meets at 7pm on the Third Monday of the month.
