In order to achieve this, we utilize a structure that lends itself to productive dialogue and for participants to feel more engaged in the parish.

The Pastoral Care and Outreach Commission (PC&OC) affirms the God-given dignity of all persons by facilitating the Church of Epiphany’s charity and justice ministries.
The commission nurtures and advocates parish activities that focus on providing physical, emotional and spiritual support to others, especially during times of uncertainty, difficulty or pain.
We strive for the continued development of a compassionate faith community by creating awareness and opportunities in our parish to serve. We recognize that God is revealed through all persons; therefore, we encourage participation in service to the disadvantaged and vulnerable of the parish and community.
The School Advisory Council is a visioning group whose mission is to encourage and facilitate lifelong education in Faith for the whole person.
We are active members of Epiphany Parish who are devoted to the support and guidance of the many education ministries that are core to the foundation of the Church of the Epiphany.
The purpose of the council is to facilitate and foster communication and collaboration between our educational committees, groups, and ministries in support of the parish plan and mission. We help provide on-going direction to the groups within the commission and assist them in reaching their goals. We serve as a liaison for our ministries to the Parish Council. Meeting minutes are posted following approval by commissioners and can be found below.
We seek the involvement of our ministries in the pursuit of the overall commission and parish objectives. We do this through communication and involvement in our monthly meetings and additional work sessions. (We meet the second Tuesday of the month.) We use a consensual decision-making process to guide our activities and recommendations. In addition, we reach out to become involved in their organizations through meetings and active participation. We do this to better understand their ministries and what they do.
The Finance Commission works with the parish staff and advises the pastor with regard to the assets and finances of The Church of the Epiphany in order to ensure that the spiritual, educational, and social needs of our community are met. The Commission will work with the church community to obtain and distribute the resources necessary to support the parish, students, faculty, and vision of The Church of the Epiphany within the guidelines of the Archdiocese.
