Saint Barbara Parish Council
Lay leaders of the community share in administering the sacred ministry that has been entrusted to the Parish Priest. The Saint Barbara Parish Council is comprised of fourteen stewards who serve a two year term of office. To be eligible to run for the Parish Council, the candidates must be in “good standing” with the Church, essentially serving as models of Christian stewardship, and must attend a seminar organized by the Direct Archdiocesan District, in which they discuss the concept of Parish ministry.
Once elected, the Parish Council members assist the clergy in the administration of affairs and ministries of the Parish; establish the appropriate committees; prepare budgets for the Parish’s administration; collect the revenue of the Parish; and adhere to the Charter, the Regulations and decisions made by the Clergy-Laity Congresses of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.
