Building and Grounds
With an aging and vast campus such as ours, it is important to keep ahead of maintenance and repair projects. The Building and Grounds Committee provides advice, resources and labor on the special projects in both the church and the school buildings.
Each month, the Finance Commission meets to review budgets, expenses and future expenses. The group offers advice and support to the pastor and the business manager with the goal of assuring long term financial stability for the Cathedral Parish.
As with all parishes in the Diocese of Joliet, the Cathedral has an active Parish Council. According to Diocesan guidelines, it functions as follows:
- The parish pastoral council, in collaboration with the pastor, assumes the overall well-being of the parish, present and future. Its primary work is strategic pastoral planning; its secondary work is consultative, proposing practical solution to the ongoing life of the parish.
- Members of the council are individuals with talent in planning and designing parish mission, vision and goals. They are individuals who are committed to the parish as a whole, are willing to serve for three years, are able to attend council meetings and can work collaboratively with each other and the pastor.
- The parish pastoral council is accountable to multiple groups and fulfills its function by being responsible to the parish community, the pastor, the Bishop, the Diocesan Pastoral Council, the Office of Ministry Formation and itself.
The Parish Council meets monthly from August to May. Meetings are generally held on the fourth Monday of each month at 7:00pm in the Cathedral Commons.
Parish Council minutes are available upon request.
