Pastoral Council

The purpose of the Pastoral Council at Saint George Church is to discern the movement of the Holy Spirit among the people of God, to work for consensus of vision among its members, and to help the parish community meet the challenges of being a church in the modern world.

"The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him:
a spirit of wisdom and of understanding, a spirit
of counsel and of strength, a spirit of
knowledge and of fear of the Lord."
(Isaiah 11: 2)

Finance Council

The Finance Council at Saint George Church meets quarterly, or on an as-needed basis, to advise the pastor on accounting, investing, and financial matters. Appointments to this council are made by the pastor. Each parish of the Erie Diocese is to have a Financial Council as required by Cannon 537.

"Lord, God of Holiness, you have called us to be the
servants and reprsentatives of our brothers and sisters 
in the parish. Help us to remember that all our concerns
are aimed at the spiritual transformation of our parish"
