Nominations are open for new members to join the SJA Parish Council. As an advisory Council to the Pastor, the Council is a visioning and planning body which listens to the community, aids in identifying needs and concerns, and helps to develop the Parish Strategic Plan.
We are seeking parishioners who exhibit enthusiasm about the future direction of SJA and are willing to listen, to speak honestly and to work toward consensus. Candidates should be registered members of SJA for at least two years and have knowledge of our parish ministries and programs.
Council members are expected to regularly attend a two-hour Council meeting once a month and to serve as a liaison with an assigned ministry.
We invite you to nominate yourself or someone else by Friday, April 7. You can do so by completing a NOMMINATION FORM (PDF) which are also available in the back of the Gym, Church and the Parish Center office. Self nominations are welcomed. Completed forms should be sent to Parish Center, attention: Dennis Heaney. All nominees will be asked to attend a Night of Information about the work of the Council on Thursday, May 4, at 7 p.m. in Hospitality Hall. A formal Night of Discernment and election will be held on Thursday, May 11, at 7 p.m. in Hospitality Hall.
