Minnesota Statutes require that each parish within the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis designates two lay members of the parish as Parish Trustees. The Trustees serve as the Secretary and Treasurer of the Parish Corporation and, along with the Archbishop, Vicar General, and Pastor, constitute the Officers of the Corporation.
Our current Parish Trustees:
Parish Pastoral Council
The Parish Pastoral Council has the primary responsibility of supporting ministries within the Parish by staying in touch with the life and activity of the parish and working to carry out the Parish’s mission. The Council should constantly evaluate Parish ministries, identify needs, implement new ideas and assist the Pastor in carrying out his leadership role.
The Parish Pastoral Council has several subcommittees and many new committees; please see below for contact information. If you have a specific skill or interest in safety and security, marketing, a trade, charity, technology, stewardship, education, or fundraising, please let us know and we will help you find an active place on our leadership team.
Parish Finance Council
The Parish Finance Council is charged with supporting the Pastor in his stewardship of the financial resources of the parish. The Parish Finance Council is a key element for promoting the financial health of Transfiguration and assuring accountability of parish resources. Parishioners with financial, legal and business backgrounds of all kinds are a good fit for Parish Finance Council.
Parish Stewardship Committee
The Parish Stewardship Committee is charged with supporting the Pastor in developing and managing stewardship efforts at Transfiguration Catholic Church. The Stewardship Committee is a key element for promoting the annual Financial Pledge Drive, New Member initiatives, volunteer recruitment in our Parish, and Planned Giving efforts. Parishioners with a passion for helping others grow in giving and serving the Lord are needed to help us develop and promote a wider base of stewardship among the parishioners of Transfiguration Catholic Church.
