The parish has two advisory bodies: The Finance Committee and the Parish Council.

The Finance Committee
The finance committee prepares with the Pastor the annual parish budget submitted to the Parish Council for approval, and the annual verbal report which is read to the parishioners at all Masses once a year. This committee is also responsible for launching the annual Family Pledge Commitment.

Prayer, Worship, Liturgy
This Mission encompasses the various programs concered with the spiritural life of the parish. The members plan and coordinated the liturgy, scaramenetal rites, and other programs of parish worship. They also encourage, by the means available, prayer in the home, retreats, missions, days of recollection, training for liturgical ministry, prayer groups, and proper care of the liturgical environment. This group meets monthly to plan and coordinate the liturgy, the celebration of the sacraments and other programs related to parish worship such as formation for various ministries (i.e. Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers, Altar Servers, and Greeters).
