Congratulations to those who were selected last weekend to serve as members of the Parish Pastoral Council: Sharon Carlisle, John Hickey and Elizabeth Adragna. As new members-at-large, each will serve a three-year term, concluding in 2018. Others were selected and will remain as alternates (on standby) for one year, filling any vacancies that may arise, and offering their assistance where needed to the council, its committees and the various commissions. The alternates include Almeta Jackson Andary and Ron Angel.
A special thanks to Larry Hyde and Jose Colina whose three-year term of service has concluded. Both opted not to be considered for selection for a second three-year term. Thanks also to Ron Angel, as he completes this three year term as well. Although not selected for a second term, Ron will serve as an alternate during the coming year.
Thanks to Melissa Kruszyna, Barb Dobson, and Kathy DeGrandis who comprised the leadership committee for council this year, and to the other members of this year’s Council: Tim Bussey, Fran Pizzimenti along with Kathy DeGrandis (serving through 2016); and Angie Skiba, Barb Janutol, and Melissa Kruszyna (serving through 2017). Other representatives on Council include SERF Vicariate Pastoral Council Representative, Charity Dorgan and Rosemarie DiRita; as well as the representatives from the commissions: Marlene Kornack and Cathy Shaulis (Christian Service), Annett Sitter (Education), Dee Johnson (Worship), Barb Dobson (Stewardship and Development/Finance and Administration) and Cis Zelinski (Evangelization) — thanks for being the ‘conduit’ between the on-going work of each commission and council, and council and each commission and their efforts this past year.
A reminder to all Parish Pastoral Council and Commission members (new, departing and returning) of our picnic barbecue on June 15th Also, mark your calendars for a retreat day to kick off the new year, probably in mid-September. More information will be coming. It will be here before you know it!
