The mission of the Parish Council at Our Lady of Peace Church is to assist and advise Father Walt in the difficult task of running the administrative functions of the church, facility and grounds.
Members are elected for 1 three year term. Sounds like a lot, but it is one evening meeting each month during the school year. Meetings last about an hour, seldom longer. The June meeting each year is an end of year, quick meeting, with a group picnic, and a “Welcome” evening for new members.
So it is not a difficult obligation. You will learn a LOT about your church and how it functions. Members may volunteer to stay for a second three year term, but then must leave for one three year cycle.
For the openings in the spring of 2020, there is one definite opening, and one member may decide to stay. The election process is very easy. If you volunteer for a term, and there are no other volunteers, then YOU ARE IN! A minimum of one opening this year, but maybe more.
If you are interested, we would love you to join. Speak to any Parish Council Member, or inquire at the rectory office. We will begin looking in April 2020, and hope to complete the process by May.
