PARISH COUNCIL: It’s here for you

BY CHRISTINE GRAY

Parish Council is here to represent you.

We share your concerns about the continued Catholic faith in our community and are aware that even though our neighbors may change, we will continue to invite everyone to worship with us at all our Masses.

This year, our Parish Council is made up of nine nominated parish members, two trustees, two youth representatives, our Faith Formation coordinators and our council secretary.

We, along with Father Cesta, work to improve your faith experience at St. Mary of Mount Carmel/Blessed Sacrament Parish.

Some of our goals include suggestions, ideas and possibilities for the long-term future of our parish. In addition the council helps to collaborate all our active committees, continue to serve our community’s needs, and encouraging our youth’s faithful presence at our services.

“Where there is no vision, people perish.” (Proverbs 29:18)

Through our social events, building improvements and community outreach, we are encouraged to serve and reach as many people as possible. It is with this spirited vision we continue to move forward with our parish life.

We are blessed with so many caring and loyal people. If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, please bring them to the attention of the Parish Council by calling the parish office at 735-1482.

“He who began a good work in you will carry it to completion.” (Philippians 1:6)

– Christine Gray is chairwoman of the Parish Council
