Staff Changes Coming
We will be saying goodbye to Andrea Mendoza, who has served our parish as the Pastoral Assistant for Social Outreach and Advocacy. Andrea has accepted a position with Catholic Community Services. I would like to thank Andrea for all she has done for the parish and wish her well in her new role.
Since Partners in the Gospel will entail combining the staff of two or more parishes, we are thinking of waiting until our parish family is finalized and announced in January before deciding how to staff this important area of parish ministry. I am counting on the many parish volunteers in our outreach and advocacy programs to keep these ministries active and thriving in this “in-between-time”.
Anne Frederick, our Pastoral Assistant for Stewardship and Evangelization, by mutual agreement, has decided to reduce her hours to give her more quality time with her grandchildren. She will continue part-time in her current position.
Our Youth Minster position has remained vacant for over a year. We are currently conducting interviews and hope to fill this position in time for our fall programs.
One of the main roles of our pastoral assistants is to empower and support parishioners to be engaged in ministry. If you are feeling the nudge to participate in a parish ministry please contact Anne, any staff member, or myself.
