In compliance with Archdiocesan governance, St John the Baptist has two separate councils to provide parish leadership and carry out the guidelines and direction set forth by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. The Pastoral Council and the Finance Council act as advisory bodies to the pastor.

The SJB Pastoral Council is a consultative and planning body in regards to pastoral activity. It strives to fulfill the pastoral mission of the parish. It does this by developing Catholic identity, promoting evangelization, and fostering stewardship. The council engages in a continuous process of pastoral planning, taking into account the needs and priorities of its parishioners, the Archdiocese, the broader community, and the world. The process of discernment is used to full vacated council positions. Please view the Pastoral Council Norms and Appendices and our Annual Report for more information.

Purpose of the Pastoral Council
The Council shall be a vehicle for fulfilling the pastoral mission of the parish. It does this by fostering growth within the parish family and the sharing of spiritual gifts and talents; by encouraging positive relationships among all members of the parish, and by collaborating with other parishes and the wider community.
The Council shall be involved in planning to meet the needs of parish, the archdiocese and the broader community, with a vision for the future and a strong basis in stewardship.
The Council, after prayerful discernment, shall advise the pastor and develop policies to support those activities and programs which foster the spiritual, intellectual, moral and temporal well-being of the parish, and shall make a contribution to archdiocesan goals and policies.
The SJB Finance Council is a consultative body in parish financial matters. The council provides advice and guidance to the Pastor in the administration of parish assets, monitors the financial condition of the parish and prepares the annual budget and reports. Please view the Finance Council Norms for more information.
