The Pastoral Council held its last meeting before summer on June 19th. We thanked Stacey Stark and Kevin McGinty, who finished their service on the council. We welcomed Latonia Bird and Lisa Marie Idzikowski, who begin a three-year term on the council as of July 1st.
We thanked Joanna Clementi for her service this past year as council chairperson. The new chair is Chris Graham. Jane Koss continues as vice chair and Emily Wisniewski as secretary. Thank you for your past service and willingness to continue.
Our parish needs to send two representatives to the North West Deanery meetings (a “deanery” is a division of the diocese). Our representatives will be Joanna Clementi and Emily Wisniewski.
The following liaisons were chosen for various parish groups:
Finance Council: Ron Skelton and Dennis Myers
Stewardship Commission: Latonia Bird
Community Life Committee:
Formation and Evangelization Commission: Lisa Marie Idzikowski
Justice and Peace Commission: Jane Koss
Liturgy Commission: Kathy Wellenstein
Parish Collaborative Committee: Jack Cluka
The open spots will be filled by pastoral council members who could not attend the June meeting. The liaisons will have the special task this year to help their group work toward implementing the parish goal.
The Finance Council met on June 24th and discerned its leadership for the next year. The former vice chairperson, Steve Scheuing, became chairperson, and the former chairperson, Colleen Pashke, became vice chairperson. Jim Jaworowicz is the secretary. I thank you for your past service and for your willingness to serve.
I thank all Pastoral and Finance Council members for this crucial ministry. Please keep members of both councils in your prayers.
