Message from the Parish Council
May 10, 2015
The following is an invitation (or call) to consider serving the Mary Queen of Heaven parish as a member of the Parish Council. If after reading a description of the activities involved, you are interested, or if you would like to recommend someone for the council, please fill out the brief form below and place it in the box in the back of church, after Mass.
The Parish Council is an advisory committee for the Pastor. For a bit of history, the concept of a pastoral council was introduced as part of Vatican II (1965), in a recommendation to bishops to establish diocesan pastoral councils. The purposes of the councils were 1.) to investigate pastoral matters, 2.) to ponder or reflect over them, and 3.) to reach conclusions that the council can recommend to the bishop. A parish council has very similar purposes, only we discern matters and make recommendations to the Pastor of the Parish. At Mary Queen of Heaven, our Parish Mission Statement is to create a welcoming parish home, bear witness to the Gospel of Christ, and serve a world in need through personal and communal prayer, reflection, and social action. This mission guides us as we consider issues and make recommendations to Father Jason.
In times of change like this past year, the Parish Council serves an important function of providing continuity and historical context for the new Pastor. The Parish attempts to have a diverse group on the council to represent a healthy cross-section of viewpoints from the Parish.
The requirements for consideration for a prospective Parish Council member are a willingness to serve and a commitment to discern issues carefully and provide counsel to the Pastor. The council meets every fourth Monday of the month throughout the year, and participates in various Parish events in addition as schedules permit, with a limited schedule during the summer months. Each member serves for a term of three years, and the council has a staggered pattern of new members, to ensure continuity. It is very rewarding to help guide the actions of the parish in helping people. If you are looking for a way to serve your Parish and help shape the activities we do in pursuit of social action, please consider stepping forward. The step forward would be to investigate, through a discernment process, whether the role is a fit at this time. If you have questions you would like to discuss first, please don't hesitate to reach out to Tony Stinsa email@example.com or Gregg Olalde firstname.lastname@example.org.
May your day be filled with peace and joy,
Tony Stinsa and Gregg Olalde
