Gospel of Life Council
The Gospel of Life Council consists of the leadership or representative(s) from the ministries of outreach and care in the parish community: ACT Office, Bereavement, Detention, Giving Tree, Respect Life, Saturday Hospitality, Scouting Outreach (Scouting).
Its vision emerges from the Parish Mission Statement and the Five Year Plan of the parish community. Although each ministry coordinates its activities and events through its membership, it does not function as an individual entity, but is the corporate-parish avenue whose emphasis is on enhancing the quality of all life from conception to the dignity of death.
The Council meets quarterly to share current endeavors as well as to assure avenues of communication are maintained in order to provide support and a common vision for the Gospel of Life at Saint Angela Merici. Members also meet when major events are scheduled by the Diocese or the parish community and provide information, invitations to various events and gatherings, special prayers, as well as theological reflection to the parish community, in order to bring to awareness the Gospel of Life among the parishioners.
Each ministry can be contacted personally or through the Parish Center Office. Ministry Coordinators are listed on the back of the bulletin,
