Pastoral Council


About Us
The Cathedral Pastoral Council serves as the consultative body for the Parish and provides counsel to the rector and lay administration; to help envision, establish, plan, and monitor the mission and activities of the Cathedral Parish. Members of the Council include the Rector, Vice-Rector, Deacon(s), Parish Business Administrator, nine persons elected by the parish, any persons appointed by the Rector, the immediate past chairperson of the Council, and a representative of each of the parish’s standing committees.

Vision Statement
We, the Cathedral community of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond, express our shared life in the ministries of liturgical celebration, faith formation and service.

Our mission is rooted in the mission of Jesus Christ to the world and in our uniqueness as a Parish, specifically the diversity of our membership, our relationship to our urban neighborhood, including Stuart Circle Parish and Virginia Commonwealth University, our history, and our special role as the Cathedral parish of our diocese.

We wish to actualize our potential in the service of God’s kingdom, by providing visible examples of cooperation, healing, presence and trust. The Council is responsible for (i) encouraging collaborative parish activity and (ii) calling and enabling all members of the parish to discover, develop, and offer their gifts in service to the wider community.
