Parish Pastoral Council
As discussed last week, we are in the process of refashioning our Parish Pastoral Council. The following notes are offered to prepare the parish for council membership nominations, which will take place on the weekend of February 8-9. What: The Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) is an advisory group to the pastor. The PPC concerns itself with a three-fold work: study, reflection, and recommendation. This task is called pastoral planning.

Who: Members of the parish, after prayerful discernment, are invited to submit their names for nomination on the PPC. To work effectively, we seek persons who possess some of the following gifts and talents: good communication skills, organization skills, good listener, ability to work on a team, experience in long-range planning and strategic planning, the ability to vision into the future. In our selection of members, we will be looking for a cross-range of age, gender, and experience, reflecting the make-up of our parish community.

When: At this time, it is envisioned for the PPC to meet at least 4 times a year, with smaller working committee meetings at other times as needed. For continuity, we seek a three-year commitment from members.

How: On the weekend of February 8-9, during our worship, you will be invited to nominate members of the parish for this new parish pastoral council. Those nominated will be asked, by letter, if they wish to have their name considered for selection. These names will then be brought to the parish staff who, in the context of prayer and reflection, will make the selection of members for the new council. (In the future, the membership of the parish pastoral council will make the selection of members from those nominated by the parish.)

To prepare for the February 8-9 nominations, please prayerfully consider members of the parish whose gifts and talents could be utilized for our new parish pastoral council.
