  • The proposal for a “Welcoming Committee” to officially welcome new parish members and recent RCIA converts was discussed It was further recommended that the “welcoming” be twice per year. A vote should be taken to proceed or not.

Results: The council approved having an informal gathering, once per month, on the first Sunday of each month, to commence on Palm Sunday.

 

The Sunday previous, we will announce in the bulletin, that the new parishioners are invited, after each Mass, to meet and greet their fellow parishioners. A table will be set up in the community room, occupied by staff and council volunteers to facilitate the effort. Mike Parker, Teresa Ulrich, Malisa Burt and Elaine Cervera will meet separately to finalize.

 

  • It was proposed that the Council, and committees meet 4 times per year, instead of the current Sept./ June schedule. The months selected were: February, May, September, and October. It was further recommended that additional meetings can be scheduled on an as needed basis. The council chairperson will contact Father at the beginning of each non scheduled month to determine if a meeting should be held. A vote should be taken to enact or table.

Result: Council approved
