Nativity of Our Lord Catholic Church benefits from the insight and dedication of dozens of parishioners who have accepted leadership roles in our parish community. Our pastor reports to Archbishop Bernard Hebda and is the ultimate decision-maker for the parish. He relies on the collective wisdom of five leadership boards for insight into and parishioners' views on the key issues, opportunities and challenges facing our parish and school communities.
Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees has three members, including our pastor. Dan Flanagan and Gerald Brennan have been appointed by the pastor and approved by the Archbishop. As trustees, they assist with legal and fiduciary matters and provide oversight on the Archdiocese's behalf.
The Pastoral Council has 12 members selected for their leadership abilities, strong faith life, perspectives on pastoral issues and volunteer activities. While it has no formal decision-making power, the Pastoral Council manages the parish's response to key issues impacting Nativity. It serves as the focal point for establishing the parish's vision, defining what Nativity stands for as a community, gathering parishioner views, researching issues, identifying internal and external resources and making recommendations to the trustees and parish administration.
