Contracts Review Committee
The Pastor is the only representative authorized to sign contracts which legally bind the parish. Most contracts are routinely renewed for recurring services, but occasionally the pastor seeks additional “sets of eyes” with professional legal expertise to review (on an entirely non-attribution basis) contracts before he signs them, especially major contracts.
CONTACT: Matt Zylicz

Lay Directors (formerly known as Trustees)
Every Church parish in our Diocese of Baton Rouge is legally incorporated with a Board of Directors. The corporate board consists of three officers and two members-at-large. The president of every Church parish corporation is the Bishop. The vice-president of every Church parish corporation is the Vicar General of the Diocese of Baton Rouge, The Secretary-Treasurer of every Church parish corporation is the Pastor of the Church parish. Two parishioners, recommended by the Pastor, are appointed by the Bishop to serve renewable two-year terms as lay directors, or members-at-large, of the Church parish corporation. Diocesan policy authorizes the Pastor to transact the routine business of the parish, and as the only legal representative of the Church parish, to sign all contracts on behalf of the Church parish. The same policies require a corporate resolution signed by the Board of Directors authorizing extraordinary (major) financial and legal transactions, e.g. purchase or sale of real estate. In addition, the two Lay Directors of the Church parish review and sign the annual comprehensive financial report to the Diocese of Baton Rouge. Additional functions of the Lay Directors are the prerogative of the Pastor.
Master Plan Committee
The physical plant of our Church, School, and Child Care Center is currently situated on 12 acres of real estate. Members of this committee devise, revise, and implement, on an on-going basis, the concrete strategies for accurately monitoring the constantly evolving “pulse” of our entire parish family-at-large, the trend of its growing (or declining) needs for facilities, and where to locate those facilities. This includes long-term planning and development. To express interest in lending expertise to assist.
