The Parish Council works to see that the parish fulfills the mission of St. Margaret of Scotland Church--a diverse, urban Catholic parish.
The Parish Council at St. Margaret of Scotland assists and advises the pastor in regard to all aspects of parish life.
Those aspects include: oversight and an overview of the various ministries and activities of the parish; oversees the on-going strategic planning processes of the parish and its various constituent elements; coordinates various parish committees and organizations so that they all work together toward achieving parish goals and objectives; makes appropriate policy recommendations to the pastor; identifies parishioners and provides training for leadership positions in the parish.
Membership of the Parish Council consists of the pastor, a number of parishioners elected by the parish at large, and a number appointed by the pastor to achieve the balance and diversity that reflects the parish.
The Council meets monthly except in July.
