St. Ambrose Parish Pastoral Council (PPC)
The St. Ambrose PPC serves as an advisory council to the pastor in parish matters through shared responsibility, mutual trust, and honest communication. Parishioners elect 4 members annually and the pastor appoints up to 2 members to each serve a 2-year term. Additional members are Ex Officios, pastoral staff and designated representatives of the parish.
The PPC is led by an Executive Committee and is divided into 3 ministries – Worship, Formation, and Service. The ministries are represented by 4 committees – Worship, Formation, Service, and Service Support. The purpose of the committees is to research topics identified by Fr. Andrzej as issues or concerns for the parish, and present recommendations to the PPC.
Council members include:
Cecilia McKinlay, Parish Office Secretary
Bruce Barron, Social Committee
Nancy Sliwinski, Refugee Ministry
Bette Vierra, Peace and Justice Committee
Gary Jenson, Finance Committee
