Parish Council

The Parish Council is an example of the synergy of clergy and laity; it is a vehicle for implementing the ongoing mission of the Church and planning the necessary strategies, policies, procedures, and activities that will enable the Parish to move forward in accomplishing God’s work.

Seven of the fourteen members are nominated at each fall general assembly and all parishioners on good financial standing(according to St. Demetrios’ parish by-laws)   are eligible. The parish council meets twice a month and among other things is responsible for the financial management of our parish and ensuring that all of the ministries of the church have the proper support to thrive in our mission.
