Pastoral Ponderings . . .
Brenda Cline, Parish Director
Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News!
Today marks our 167th annual parish meeting – and our 167th annual opportunity to reflect on the Good News in our life as a church, and how we impact our community and world! Our new mission statement, “The Hands of Christ…Open to All”, reflects both who we are, and who we hope to be. It breathes new life into our commitment to live the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.
We are grateful for our leaders who meet monthly to tend to the mission of this parish…..the members of your Pastoral and Finance Councils! These councils are co-equal bodies of leadership, charged with tending the spiritual and temporal needs of the parish.
The members of your Pastoral Council , and the office or committee they represent, are as follows:
|Ashley Medinger – Chairperson||Gordy Thompson – Youth Representative|
|Jim Federman – Vice Chairperson & School||Gerry Hazlett – Stewardship Committee|
|Yvonne Wolfe – Secretary & Life Long Faith||Hope Holland-Mullins – Worship Committee|
|Ron Putzer – Trustee Secretary||Tom Dow – Human Concerns Committee|
|Chuck Boehm – Trustee Treasurer||John Gallo – Los Toros Council|
|Rick Schaub – Finance Council||Joe Voiland – Finance Council|
|Tom Schmitz – Life Long Faith Formation||Colleen Wigh – Life Long Faith Formation|
|TJ Mlada – School Committee||Brenda Cline – Parish Director|
The members of your Finance Council , in addition to the two Trustees and two Pastoral Council representatives listed above, are:
Jim Kregel – Chairperson
Jay Frymark, our Director of Administration, serves as a resource and guide to the Finance Council. I serve on both the Pastoral and Finance Councils.
These new council leaders are here to represent you and the mission of St. Joseph Parish. Get to know them – share your stories and dreams with them – join me in thanking them for their service – and most importantly, please pray for them. Just as today’s Psalmist proclaims, we must now “Go out to all the world and tell the Good News” of how God continues to work in our lives!
