Lay Staff
Holy Family is blessed with a large and talented lay staff. Assisting the Pastor and the priests are lay persons working on a full-time basis and managing the key ministries of the parish. A support staff of other lay persons handle the operational, clerical, janitorial, and maintenance tasks of our parish complex. For each of the five areas of parish life — Worship, Education/Formation, Outreach ,and Community Life, — there is a staff member engaged in that ministry area and representing that particular area on the corresponding commission. (see Commissions).

Finance Council
The Finance Council is the chief advisory body to the Pastor on fiscal matters. The Finance Council is composed of the Pastor, the Business Manager, and a volunteer group of 8 parishioners with expertise in financial matters. (see Finance Council)

Pastoral Council
The Pastoral Council is the chief advisory body to the Pastor for parish planning. The Pastoral Council is composed of the Pastor and a volunteer group of 12 parishioners who provide overall vision and direction to the parish, particularly through the five commissions which represent the five facets of parish life. (see Pastoral Council)

The four facets of parish ministry — Worship, Education/Formation, Outreach, and Community Life, — each have a body of eight to 15 parishioners who carry out activities in their respective areas through subcommittees and lend direction to the ministries which fall within their purview. Each commission has a full-time lay staff member on it.

– The Education/Formation Commission supports all levels of religious education; encouraging all to participate in life-long spiritual formation through community-wide catechesis.

– The Administration Commission lends expertise, advice, and practical assistance in providing stewardship of physical assets, overseeing parish operations, and providing assistance and support to the staff and other commissions on an as-needed basis. The commission carries out its activities through subcommittees. Ministries to which the Administration Commission lends direction are listed under Ministries.

– The Worship Commission seeks to encourage full, active, conscious participation of the whole community at worship to help connect faith with life. This Commission coordinates all aspects of prayer and liturgy in the parish. It provides direction and vision for what the parish seeks in communal worship.

– The Community Life Commission is committed to providing a welcoming, hospitable atmosphere throughout the parish community. The commission fosters interaction and communication among parish organizations, encourages broad-based parishioner involvement in parish life and ministry, and promotes opportunities for community building.

– The Outreach Commission provides servant leadership for all parish groups and ministries that reach out beyond the people who come to church, fosters cooperation and sharing of resources among groups, and sets visionary goals in keeping with the core values of our parish.
