PARISH COUNCILS

From its earliest days as a parish, Holy Family of McGregor and Our Lady of Fatima of McGrath have had prudent and dedicated parishioners who stepped forward to establish a faith community and work with the pastor and the diocese to maintain a parish that provided its members with liturgy, pastoral care, education and opportunities for ministry. Governance at Holy Family and Our Lady of Fatima is provided by the board of directors and lay trustees, and the Pastoral and Finance Councils.
