What We Do

The Office of Parish Services provides a variety of leadership services to parishes and parish organizations. Assistance is available in the following areas:

Help Us Keep Our Records Updated

To improve communications between the Chancery and parish leadership groups, we need to have current information on your parish pastoral councils, finance councils, stewardship councils, school advisory councils, and deanery leadership members from our parishes.

Our office manages parish leadership lists to ensure proper communications are distributed to those who need it.

Please use the link below to provide contact information for your parish leadership.
