This is the time of year when we ask people to prayerfully consider serving in various parish
leadership roles that will be available. The work of the Church has always been fueled by people offering their talent and time. Perhaps there is something you have to offer our parish in the way of leadership that you are able to share. Please look over this form detailing the leadership positions that need to be filled. Prayerfully consider taking a leadership role or nominate a parishioner whom you truly feel would be a good leader. Persons who are nominated will be contacted and invited to participate in a discernment session to give them more information on the commitment. Your
prayers for the success of this selection process and for the life of our parish are always a way to be connected and involved; a leadership role will enhance this. Nomination forms can be placed in the collection basket at Mass, mailed in, or dropped off at the parish office. You can also
e-mail any nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
