Serve One Another: Leadership Discernment

Councils & Commissions Discernment

Each spring, we seek new members for our parish councils and commissions through a process of discernment. We pray to the Holy Spirit to guide the hearts of parishioners in this discernment process. You are encouraged to prayerfully consider how you might be called to help serve our parish as a member of one of our parish councils or commissions.

Parishioners should nominate themselves or other parishioners. Nominees should be fully-initiated Catholics and registered St. Max parishioners who regularly participate in the life of the parish. Nominations should be submitted to the parish office, dropped in the collection basket, or submitted online. Nominations are due by Friday, March 8, 2024.

Nominees will be contacted to ask if they will consider nomination. Those who do will be required to attend a Discernment Night.

After self-reflection and prayer, those who feel called to serve, can submit their names confidentially for the council or commission they feel called to.

For the year of 2024, we have the following open positions:

-Outreach Commission (3 openings)

-Parish Life & Stewardship Commission (3 openings)

-Worship & Sacraments (3 openings)

-Finance Council (1 opening)

-Pastoral Council (3 openings)
