On May 18, we had our 1st Parish Town Hall Meeting! It went very well, and we thank those who were able to attend. For those unable to attend, the presentation is available below.
At the meeting, we spoke about our Parish Mission, the Financial Status of the Parish, and our Holy Cross Catholic School. We spent a lot time going through the survey results and our ministries, their purpose, what they’ve done and what’s next. We’ve restructured the Pastoral Council to respond best to our Parish needs and our ministries include:
Evangelization – being led by Ashlee Rickert. It includes being a part of a Welcoming team, helping to coordinate events, speakers and outreach, or assisting with a mentor program before marriage.
Service and Discipleship – being led by Betty Smisek. This ministry includes works of mercy and faith formation, including Adult Bible Study, visiting the shut-ins, and community outreach programs.
Youth and Family ministry. This was a big topic on the survey mentioned as an area vital to our Church! A team has been formed and we welcome you to be a part of fundraising and coordinating events for our youth and families.
Communication and Technology – being led by Heather Malecha. It includes communicating using both print and electronic methods, plus building awareness of our Church. We will seek to inform of events, capturing pictures, writing newsletters, website, and social media.
If you are interested in volunteering in any of these ministries or in the Mass, please contact the Parish Office at 507-744-2829 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
