Selection of Parish Council Members

On Pentecost weekend, June 9th and 10th 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 assist with 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 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 5th.

Thanks for considering this important matter.

Fr. Gerald A. McEnhill

Liturgy of the Word for Children

Children from ages 4-8 are invited to attend this program during our 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Masses on Sunday.  They will be welcomed by trained facilitators that have all taken Protecting God’s Children and have a strong desire to unleash the Gospel with your children so that they too may encounter, grow and witness Jesus Christ.  Each week our teachers come prepared with amazing lessons that they truly want to share with your little ones.  They rejoin you during the offertory so that they will not miss the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
