Parish Council
Nine elected lay members serve three-year terms.  The Parish Council assists the pastor in the spiritual leadership of the parish.

Liturgy Committee
The Liturgy Committee prepares for special liturgies and trains parishioners for participation in Liturgical ministries as choir members, ushers, lectors, Eucharistic ministers and altar servers. 

Community Outreach
This committee helps with several charities, including The Catholic Worker House, St.Vincent dePaul, Green Square Meals and Habitat for Humanity, and the Community Free Health Clinic. They also support local charity walks. 

Parish Life
The Parish Life Committee organizes activities that bring our parish community together as one.

Finance and Administration
The Finance and Administration Committee is responsible for planning, providing and supervising the financial affairs and the physical properties of the parish.  Its members oversee the budget, stewardship and church maintenance of the parish plant. 

Building and Grounds 
This sub-committee handles the maintenance of the parish buildings and grounds.  Committee members facilitate minor improvements and carpentry work and also give advice for major projects.

Faith Formation
The Saint Wenceslaus Board of Education interacts with the Holy Family Grade School System and Xavier High School.  It oversees the parish religious education programs for children and adults.  Special preparations for the Sacraments of Holy Eucharist, Penance and Confirmation are also offered.  There are five voting members elected for three-year terms.  The pastor and Director of Religious Education are members of the Board.
