Our Committees

What happens behind the scenes?

There are many volunteers who work as a team to help keep our Church running!

In addition to our Parish Council, our Finance Committee, and our School Board, we also have many other committees that are active in keeping our Church running smoothly, being a safe place, and looking great. See our various committees below, and consider joining one of them if you are interested!

Our Various Committees

These are the Committees that are currently active in our Church, read more about them and perhaps consider joining one!

Parish Council

The Parish Council discerns the will of God for our local Church, provides vision and leadership in decision making, solicits opinions of parishioners, acts as liaisons with other groups in our church (listed on this page), participates in monthly meetings, and our annual parish meeting.  Meets the 4th Tuesday of the month at 7pm. Click to learn more, see who the current members are, or to read summaries of meeting minutes.

Finance Committee

The Finance Committee provides advice and counsel regarding the administration and financial activities of the parish. Click to learn more, to see current members, or to view summaries of meeting minutes.

School Board

The School Board is part of the effort by Our Lady of the Lake to establish a sustainable, cutting-edge educational product.  It is a unique school governance model that allows an elected School Board to have a more prominent role in working with the Pastor to govern the school.  Click to see the current members, summaries of meeting minutes, as well as the bylaws which have been approved by the Archdiocese and are available for anyone to review.
