Parish members are discerned to these five standing committees each year in March and April through a nomination process. Nomination Weekend provides an opportunity for parish members to nominate themselves or someone they feel has the essential characteristics for the five Standing Committees. Nomination forms are collected at Mass.
Committee terms begin on July 1 and are typically last for three years. Committee members continue to be discerned from the Parish at large, and Pastoral Council members are discerned from active members of one of the Parish’s five Standing Committees.
Individuals who have been nominated for a leadership committee will be contacted by a member of Pastoral Council or an appointee of the committee. Nominees are invited to learn more about the committee by reading past meeting notes. Nominees will be invited to the April Common Leadership Night and have an opportunity to meet with the committees.
