The Parish Council of St. Adalbert is a group of people who represent the entire community and who plan and guide its growth. They are chosen by the parish to join with the pastor in a special service of long-range planning, the setting of parish priorities, and the implementation of programs. First election of Parish Council members was held on April 27, 1969, under the guidance of Fr. Alfred Stopyra OFMConv. Since that time, monthly meetings provide a forum for representatives from parish organizations to report on their group’s activities, discuss new endeavors, and evaluate existing programs. Successive pastors used to choose people so the whole parish was well represented. Presently the Parish Council works closely with the Finance Council. Members of both councils help the pastor Fr. Miroslaw Podymniak OFMConv., who is accountable to the Diocesan Bishop for the administration and stewardship of the parish. The Parish Finance Council assists him in the administration of parish temporal matters. Members of the councils, like parts of our own body, have special functions. All of them have different talents and skills that they bring together to form a single body. Their aim is to speak with one voice for the Parish.
