NEXT WEEKEND we will be collecting nominations for new Parish Pastoral Council members. We ask that you consider registered parishioners who can share their motivation, spirituality, and are able to give of their Time and Talent for the good of our parish. Your nomination of a person is not a commitment for them. It is simply an invitation for them to consider pursuing the selection process.
We will be selecting 2 women and 2 men for a three-year term, and 2 youth (15-18) to serve a one-year term.
Parish Pastoral Council members represent the Parish Community. We attend monthly meetings (except July and August), and contribute to discussion and decisions regarding the Parish. Each year new members are selected near Pentecost Sunday.
Please nominate those individuals whom you believe would represent you. Each nominee is invited to an informational meeting after which they determine if they wish to serve the Parish community. The names of those individuals who agree to serve are randomly placed together and new Parish Council members are selected through the intervention of the Holy Spirit.

by Matthew Kelly
Join us for a 6 week book study learning from Matthew Kelly as he shares with us remarkable insights and sensible everyday strategies for transforming the family into what it should be: a place where each of us can become the-best-version-of-ourselves. Beginning with an exploration of the changing face of the family in our culture, Kelly sets every listener at ease by explaining: “A family is not what we think a family should be, or what we hope to have, or should have, or what would be ideal - a family is what we actually have…”
