After three visioning meetings (with more to come) we, as a parish, are now at a point where we must analyse and consider our options for ministry which we have available and can financially support. We must think about what option we would be interested in exploring to ensure our parish continues to move forward and thrive. The following options have been short listed for consideration:
a) Part time priest solely for parish
b) Part time share a priest - between 1 or 2 Anglican parishes or 2 or more (Nearby Parishes include: Parish of Blandford, Parish of French Village, St. Nicholas Westwood, Chester)
c) Cluster - group of Anglican parishes that share a team of ministers (lay and clergy, 2 - 4)
d) Partner with another denomination
e) Priest in charge - fee for service
We have many important decisions to make moving forward and it is important that everyone in the parish has their voice heard. Stay tuned for our next visioning meeting!
Below is a summary of notes from the previous visioning sessions:
An Easter Message from our Priest-in-Charge
We are looking for Church Greeters
We would like to re-build our roster of greeters; there should be two people each Sunday. If you would like to help welcome folks into services please let Jerry Cavanaugh know so you can be fit into the schedule.
There will be a Parish Council Meeting on Monday April 19th at 7 pm at St. Luke's Parish Hall
