Lay Leadership of our Parish - Parish Council

Our Council

Along with the clergy, our parish is also led by the Parish Council and its officers, who care for the day to day administration of the church. Learn more about our current council and its officers here.

NOTICE OF GENERAL ASSEMBLY: On Sunday, Oct. 22nd, at 11:00 a.m., our Cathedral of Ss. Constantine & Helen will hold its Fall General Assembly. This is an important meeting, as we will be accepting notions for the 2024-25 Parish Council. To participate in the General Assembly, one must be in Good Standing with the Parish. Good Standing is determined by both your canonical status in the Church (spiritual) as well as your financial commitment. If you have any questions regarding your standing in the community, please contact the church office or Fr. Ted.

PARISH COUNCIL ELECTIONS: In late fall, our Cathedral will be electing a new Parish Council for the 2024-2025 term. It’s not too early to start thinking about serving on the Parish Council! Nineteen seats will be open for election. If you want to see improvements and changes in our church leadership, please consider getting involved. Sitting on the sideline doesn’t help our parish improve and grow. You need to get into the game and work as a team to be victorious. A candidate must be a member in good standing canonically and financially for at least one year immediately preceding the date of the election and be willing to sacrificially give of their time, talent and financial resources for the good of the Church and our Cathedral of Ss. Constantine & Helen.
