Each parish in the Diocese of Superior is incorporated under Wisconsin Statute sec 187.19. In other words, parishes are corporations, legally speaking, and, therefore, must have a board of directors.
A parish corporation is a civil body created for legal purposes. Each has authority and competence in civil and secular matters.
Members of the Board
Trustees are appointed by the pastor and serve as members of the Board of Directors for a term of two years, which is renewable, and until their successors are duly selected and qualified.
Trustees also assist with ensuring that their parishes are in compliance with the U.S. bishops’ 2002 Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People.
