Pastoral Council is a consultative body working with the Pastor. They are primarily concerned with directional planning, as compared to operational planning which is the role of the Commissions and Staff. They consult with and provide recommendations to the Pastor regarding direction and priorities for the parish.
Functions of the Pastoral Council are to: study the life, activities, and needs of the parish; define the current Mission Statement and Goals to guide the future life of the parish; promote development as a faith community, as a sign and witness of unity for the parish; promote communication and understanding between commissions, staff and parishioners, as well as between the parish, archdiocese and the universal church; and evaluate how well the parish is achieving its Mission Statement, goals and priorities.

My name is Cindy White. My husband Doug and I have been parishioners at St. Anthony since 2008. I am a retired High School Theology instructor with an MA in Theology from Mt. Angel Seminary. I developed a deep love for our Holy Scriptures about 20 years ago that has resulted in praying daily with scripture, teaching Bible classes and remaining an active participant in Bible Studies in our parish. About 5 years ago I participated in a course entitled “Just Faith” here at St. Anthony and it has given me guidance to broaden my faith through Jesus’ call to acts of social justice. I currently serve as a Lector and assistant cook on Team 4 of our Community Cafe. I look forward to serving the needs of parish members as a part of this council.

I am Carrie Marthaller. I have been a parishioner of St. Anthony parish since 2010, when our family moved to Tigard. My husband Joe and I have two wonderful daughters, Sophia and Lauren, who attend St. Anthony School. I have taught religious education for many years, as well as helped with VBS and camp Tilikum. I also help coach the St. Anthony CYO track team, and a Tigard Youth Soccer team. I’m a graduate of the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!), and work in social service.

I was brought up in the Presbyterian Church, but started attending St Anthony with my wife Mary, after we were married in 1999. I completed the RCIA program and joined the church in 2002. Mary and I are blessed with two wonderful kids, in two of the amazing schools in the Archdiocese, attending St. Anthony School and Jesuit High School. I am employed as an Estimating Manager for a local high-tech manufacturer and enjoy my job. I enjoy kayaking and have paddled many of the rivers, lakes and bays in Oregon, enjoying hiking and camping during the summer months. My faith has grown stronger in many ways since I joined St Anthony and I know that Pastoral Council will only continue that growth. I also think that seeking to understand will be key to this position and will allow me to be a good representative for other church members.
I have been part of the St. Anthony parish community since moving to Tigard in 2000 and it is an honor for me to serve as member of the Parish Pastoral Council. I’d previously served on the Council from 2004 to 2012. I’m an active member in the parish community, serving on the Vietnamese community leadership team, the Vietnamese RE & Language Program, and member of the Vietnamese Choir. I love this parish community. I’ve seen so much positive progress over the years and I’m excited to serve once again on the Pastoral Council.
