About Parish Council


The St. Basil’s Parish Council is formed and convened to serve as a consultant resource for the Pastor. Framed by Canon Law and recent tradition, the Parish Council does not have decision-making authority, but rather undertakes study, analysis and reflection to identify the pastoral and practical needs of the parish. By decree of the Archdiocese and as a mandate from Canon Law, the parish must have a Finance Council to specifically “advise the pastor on matters pertaining to the financial affairs of the parish.” These Councils are “representative” in that they make present “the wisdom of the community” on issues of spiritual and material significance to the parish. In combination with the expertise and experience of council members, this commitment to represent others in the community is to assist the Pastor in fulfilling his responsibilities to the parish “wisely.” (Canon 536:2) “And all who believed were together and had all things in common…” – Acts 2:44
