SCS Parish Lay Leadership

Parishioner involvement and commitment is a vital part of our faith community.
Three lay, parishioner-directed Councils play a critical role in the life of our parish and
provide our Pastor, Monsignor Robert Slipe, with important advice and counsel to assist him in his position as head of St. Catherine of Siena Parish.

Our lay leadership Councils are:

SCS PASTORAL COUNCIL, the premier Parish leadership body, which advances our Parish Mission, sets our Vision, and discerns and facilitates Strategic Plans to translate our Vision into reality. The Pastoral Council also liaisons with all individual Parish Ministries.
Members of the Pastoral Council are identified through a discernment process, appointed by the Pastor and serve a term of 3 years.
SCS FINANCE COUNCIL, which advises the Pastor on the Financial Operation of the Parish, prepares and submits the Parish Budget to the Archdiocese of Newark, and monitors our Financial Performance against that Budget.
Members of the Finance Council are appointed by the Pastor.
The Membership Roster of each lay leadership Council, 2017-2018, is provided below, along with contact information.
These Parish Leaders are eager to hear your views, ideas and suggestions, as well as answer questions or help navigate a path for your full participation in life at St. Catherine’s.
