The Council meets monthly from September to May on the first Monday of the month. At least two meetings per year are open to all parishioners. The Council has an Executive Committee, composed of the pastor and three officers, which is responsible for setting the agenda for the meetings.

The Parish Council has one member who serves on the Vicariate Council and acts as liaison, reporting on meetings and activities when appropriate.
