St James Pastoral Council is a group of faithful men and women who are called together and guided by the teaching of the gospel and the Holy Spirit. Through active participation in spiritual and social activities and leadership, they will minister for the overall well-being of the Parish Community. We’d like to invite you to come to understand what we do, and extend the opportunity for you to share with us ways to enhance the St. James community. The Pastoral Council is an advisory board to Msgr. Charlie in the formulation of St. James Pastoral plan. This is accomplished through a prayerful discernment process involving all pastoral council members together with Msgr. Charlie. Our general meetings are held on the last Wednesday of each month in the rectory and sub committees meet at various times and locations throughout the month.
We presently consist of twelve members. They are: Issam Abdallah (Chair), Suzan Miarmi (Treasurer), Kathy Scully (Secretary), Victoria De Guzman, Dolores Gioffre, Ray Bober, Dave Gerity, Kevin Mal, Paul Ortenzio, Diane Perez, Pat Purcell, Peggy Foley, Erica Lazarus, and Anne Marie Almasi.
We welcome your ideas and comments. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our parish please let us know. Feel free to address us personally or through email: (SJPCWoodbridge@gmail.com).
