Our Priest at Holy Redeemer
The role of a pastor
According to the Second Vatican Council, the pastor of a given parish is to work with the baptized faithful under the Bishop in developing the spiritual life of the parish. That spirituality includes personal growth in holiness and the social justice aspects of the Gospel.
It requires a model of collaborative ministry. You will find that kind of collaboration in decision making and the use of parishioners gifts and talents here at Holy Redeemer.
Two councils (Parish Pastoral and Finance) are essential to accomplish the above mentioned goals of the parish. The members of these councils are both elected and appointed.
The Liturgical Environment Committee is essential in decorating the church for the various seasons of the year. They do much to enhance our worship of God.
