The ministries and activities of Sts. Simon and Jude parish are organized under the structure of parish commissions. The pastor is aided by the Pastoral Council (PC). The PC is an advisory body to the pastor and also a representative body for the parishioners of SSJ. The ministries and activities of the parish are organized under the commissions which, ideally, will help these groups to coordinate their efforts and make the best use of the time, talent, and treasure given by the parishioners. The commissions also help implement the goals set out for the parish by the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and/or pastor with the PC. The chairpersons of the commissions bring the concerns of the ministries of their commissions to the attention of the pastor and PC.
