Parish Council


The Parish Council of Our Lady of the River consists of 9 elected parish members, two youth members, two Parish Lay Directors, the Pastor, and Deacon. Each spring three new adult members are elected. Each elected member serves a 3-year term. We also have youth who serve a one year term. The Parish Council meets on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM. Meetings are open to all parishioners. The Council has six commissions and several committees on which council members and others may serve. The commissions are: Liturgy, Family Life, Church Life, Social Action, Faith Formation, and Finance. We also have altar and Rosary, 20/20 vision committee, Buildings & Grounds, and Health Ministry. As a group the Council is advisory to the Pastor on all aspects of parish affairs.
