The Pastoral Council is a prayerful, consultative body assisting the pastor and providing the fullness of vision needed for the Parish’s mission. The work of the Council focuses on planning, developing and implementing a Pastoral Plan to carry out the parish’s Vision and Mission. The Parish Pastoral Council is an important resource in achieving full and inclusive participation of the whole parish in the ministries and activities of the Parish.

The Administrative and Finance Council is the consultative group which assists the Pastor in carrying out the material administration of the parish. It has the obligation of planning, and supervising the financial affairs and physical properties of the parish.
The Finance Council is concerned with parish resources, the budget, church support, and the effective utilization and maintenance of the parish plant. In addition to its consultative role, the Bishop requires the approval of a Parish Finance Council for construction, major expenditures, etc.
Please contact Sharon Burk in the Parish Office if you have any questions or suggestions.
School Advisory Council
The Our Lady of The Lake School Advisory Council provides general direction for the school through carefully deliberated policies and provides advice to the Pastor and Principal on school-related matters. Council members are able to have an impact through direct involvement in improving and guiding school programs.
The Council consists of elected members as well as the Principal and the Pastor. Members serve three-year terms, and up to three of the nine are elected each spring by the Parish as a whole. Members serve on several subcommittees, including Finance, Technology, Marketing, Fundraising, Alumni Communication, Grants/Scholarships and Long Range Planning.
Those interested in serving are invited to attend and observe monthly meetings during the school year. Candidates need not have children in Our Lady of The Lake School, but they must be registered parishioners or parents of a student here and have a working knowledge of the school's activities, mission and structure.
