Parish Pastoral Council

Mission Statement

“To engage and inspire our community to do the work of Christ.


Greetings from the Parish Pastoral Council at St. Thomas Aquinas!

Our mission is to engage and inspire our community to do the work of Christ. We are a consultative group of parish volunteers, led by our Pastor, charged with prayerfully discerning parish needs, setting pastoral priorities, and empowering people to participate in the mission of Christ. We work closely with the finance council to make solid recommendations to our Pastor. Monsignor Stack often engages us in shared decision-making for our church, and we are honored to serve our parish community.

We have been working on the Strategic Plan created a couple of years ago. One common theme in that plan, created from your input, was a need to develop better communication across several areas. To make us more accessible to you, we have an email address and invite you to send us any questions or thoughts that arise. We will get back to you within 48 hours. We look forward to hearing from you! Our email address is [email protected].
