The Pastoral Council is comprised of parishioners selected by the pastor in order to represent their voice regarding parish issues. Members serve four-year terms.
On our June 13, 2023 meeting, these topics were addressed:
The continued revitalization of the Ministry of Hospitality program, including an excellent turnout of new volunteers at a recent training session.
The continued development of a new format for baptism preparation which had been tested out recently. We anticipate that the new format will be launched in September 2023.
The planning of some important organizational changes to the PPC. It is the PPC’s sincere and prayerful intention to reflect the diverse backgrounds and experiences of the entire St. Anne’s faith community. Accordingly, we aim to increase diversity in the composition of the PPC and to foster ways for parishioners from all ages, backgrounds and life experiences to contribute meaningfully to parish pastoral planning.
PPC continued its preparation to involve the entire parish community in rearticulating and reaffirming St. Anne’s parish mission statement. The next Parish Pastoral Council meeting is scheduled for July 18, 2023.
