At the Cathedral, the Rector regularly seeks advice and counsel from several councils and committees, some of which are designated as leadership councils. The leadership councils provide advice and counsel regarding three main areas of parish life: pastoral areas, financial matters, and liturgical issues. Thus, the three main leadership councils are the Pastoral Council, the Finance Council, and the Liturgy Council. All councils and committees welcome input from parishioners on issues identified or suggestions for improvements in the way we as a parish are growing and providing services.
The Finance Council is a collaborative body of the Christian faithful, working with the pastor in the administration of financial matters of the parish.
The St. John's Pastoral Council is the lay advisory group that speaks for the people of God in consultation with the Rector. One of its primary roles is pastoral planning, as the Council continually renews and revises the Parish Strategic Plan. Read the complete bylaws here to understand the function and operation of the Council.
The Liturgy Council is a group of parishioners and clergy that plan our liturgies and formulate policies and procedures to recommend to the Rector, to enhance our beautiful liturgies.
These groups of parishioners for advisory bodies to help the staff and clergy better serve our parishioners.

The ambassador team contacts new registered parishioners, and then tries to facilitate a second connection with a potential ministry of interest, or an upcoming social event, etc. Thanks to the members of this ministry we’re able to make an effort to better welcome our newcomers!

This ministry aims to support a safe and secure environment for parishioners to worship and parish staff to serve. It consists of volunteers who are willing to step up and serve as a first responder in the event of an incident at a parish event. Some training is required to deal with specific situations, but it’s worthwhile as it helps to maintain a safe environment for all.
