Parish Advisory Board
The PAB meets bi-monthly and is made up of 12 elected members. Six new members are elected each year during a parish-wide, popular election, replacing those whose two year term has ended. Members can serve two consecutive two year terms and then must step down for at least one year. Candidates are eligible if registered for at least two years, and actively participating. With the parish mission statement and goals and objectives as their creed, the role of the PAB is to act as advisor to the pastor by expressing the 'voice of the parish'. Members engage the parish at large to create opportunities for dialogue, encourage involvement, seek out resources and provide opportunities that foster fellowship and community.

The first edition of The Advocate was published in the late 1980s and was designed to be the vehicle used by the lay leadership to communicate with the parish at large. Since then, this quarterly publication has evolved to become a vehicle for highlighting news in the parish and raising up ministries, groups and individuals. Needed: volunteer with desktop publishing experience for newsletter layout.
