Senior Leadership Team
The Senior Leadership Team (SLT) has been called to serve our staff, lay leaders and parishioners. Following a model of shared leadership with Fr. Francis, they are united in carrying forward St. Josaphat Parish’s vision and mission. And in turn, they continue to raise up more leaders to share the vision and mission in all parish events and activities.
The Archdiocese of Chicago wants all parishes to implement Senior Leadership Teams composed of 4–6 members who share responsibility for the success of the parish with the pastor. They meet weekly, and co-own, with the pastor, the implementation of the parish vision and strategy for growth. They participate in the governing responsibility of the pastor by supporting day-to-day pastoral activity.
Our Senior Leadership Team is:
Fr. Francis Bitterman, Pastor
Deacon Pat Casey, Parishioner
Mary Jane Sullivan, Director of Evangelization and Pastoral Associate
Sue Fedea, Parishioner and Parish Graphic Designer
Christine Frech, Parishioner and Director of Staff
