Parish Councils Parish Pastoral Council - This advisory group makes recommendations to the pastor about the pastoral life of the parish. They keep themselves informed about the demographics, interests and attitudes of parishioners, and give input to the pastor regarding major policies and directions of the parish. The Parish Pastoral Council meets every six weeks. For more information, please contact president Jim Knoves. Parish Finance Council - This council advises the pastor on parish finances, helps the staff prepare the annual parish budget and presents the budget to the pastor for his approval. This council also shares in the long-range financial planning of the parish. Per Canon law, every parish is required to have a finance committee. Members of the committee are appointed by the pastor. The Finance Council meets on the last Tuesday in January, March, April, June, August, September, October, and November. For more information, please contact St. Michael Business Manager, Scott Hungler.
Parish Commissions & Committees Commissions and Committees are the task groups of councils. Pastoral Council commissions correspond to the four areas of the Church mission—to teach, to sanctify, to serve, and to unify. Each commission may have committees or ministry teams to carry out some specific area of this ministry, such as youth ministry, liturgical environment, respect life or welcoming. These committees may assist with the budget, personnel, buildings and grounds, or parish life.
Worship Commission - The Worship Commission provides consultation to the director of worship concerning season liturgies, liturgical ministries, and the quality of worship within the parish. It also shares in some planning and implementation. The Worship Commission meets on the second Monday monthly at 7:30 p.m. For more information, please contact St. Michael Music Director, Brian Bisig.
Community Outreach Commission - Provides consultation to the pastor through members of the pastoral staff about the needs and service projects inside and outside of the parish.

The Community Outreach Commission meets on the third Monday monthly at 7:30 p.m. For more information, please contact Community Outreach Commission Chair, Rhonda Marshall.
