A Catholic School Board is set up according to the code of Canon Law. All Parish boards are consultative. Actions of the board become effective only upon the approval of the Pastor. Since the main purpose of the board is to assist the Pastor and the Principal in providing quality Catholic education in the Parish School, the majority of board members are to be practicing Catholics. To be a school board member is more than just a job and is distinctly different from a political commitment. It is to accept a mission and to bring to that mission one’s talents, wisdom, experience, faith, life and good will.
