The Parish Council serves as a consultant to the pastor by investigating, reflecting on, visioning, and making recommendations about pastoral concerns. Our goal is to support our parish's current and future ministries, thus enabling the Church of the Ascension to continue our mission to Proclaim the Gospel, Celebrate the Eucharist, and Serve the Community.
As representatives of our parishioners, we prayerfully reflect and advise on the community's needs and the parish's purpose in light of the mission and vision of the Church of the Ascension, the Diocese of Richmond, and the greater Catholic Church.
Finally, the parish council continuously develops and articulates a deep and mature understanding of the identity and purpose of the parish. It reflects the unique personality of the parish as it evolves, using the parish's mission statement as our foundation.
