Consider Joining the Parish Council – June 7/8

Selection of Parish Council Members

On Pentecost weekend, June 7/8, the parish will select new members to the parish council. I want to invite every adult member of the parish to consider being a nominee.

The main quality that a candidate must have is a genuine desire to help the parish do even better at fulfilling its mission. In terms of a time commitment it is not too demanding. You will need to make the commitment to attend the monthly meetings (we do not meet in the summer), make a few phone calls each month in order to get input/ feedback from the parishioners and approximately twice a year coordinate the coffee and donuts fellowship on Sunday.

The selection will take place by putting all the names of all the nominees/candidates in a container at two of the Masses on Pentecost weekend, I will pull a name and that person will serve on our council. The term of office will be for three years.

What is great about this system is that everyone in the parish has an equal opportunity to serve on the parish council. All I need is to hear from you saying you are willing to serve. Please call me at the rectory or tell me when you see me at Mass or at a meeting. I am looking forward to hearing from you and possibly serving with you on parish council. I will need to hear from you by Wednesday, June 4th.

Thanks for considering this important matter.

Fr. Gerald A. McEnhill
