PASTORAL COUNCIL NOMINATIONS
The Parish Pastoral Council consists of the pastor, twelve elected members from the parish and up to seven additional members selected by the pastor. The purpose of the council is to investigate pastoral matters, to consider them thoroughly, and to propose practical recommendations about them. Every year, four positions on the council are up for re-election, with terms starting at our October meeting. We will be soliciting nominations for those four positions at Mass on the weekend of September 12-13, with nomination forms distributed and collected at each Mass. There will also be an opportunity to nominate people through the parish office and online here now through September 14. People receiving the highest number of nominations will be included on an election ballot to be distributed and collected at Mass in October. Elected members who will be staying on the council include Andy Brindisi, Dorothy Brindisi, Mary Ann Coleman, Ray Dussault, Paul Lonnemann, Leo Luciani, Sandra Ouellette, and Tom Robinson. Elected members with expiring terms who may be re-nominated include Dick Borden, Ellen Dougan, Jolanta Krach, and Kevin Weekes. Please prayerfully consider who you would like to nominate (or self-nominate) for this important council.
