Pastoral Council Elections

Posted on October 18, 2019 in: General News

A few years ago, at the direction of Bishop Bambera, a new Parish Pastoral Council was formed.  Ten parishioners from St. Lawrence Church  formed the new council, the first our church has had in many years.  Two of these council members have terms that will expire at the end of this year making it necessary for St. Lawrence to elect replacements.  If anyone has an interest please contact Chris Kriner ( or 570-447-2114) or Janey Karney ( or 570-419-6439).  There is information on the church's website explaining in detail what the job of Pastoral Council is and how it operates.  There is also information on what makes a good council member.  We hope you will give prayerful consideration to serving in this very important ministry.   Those who agree to be nominated will submit a personal statement that will be posted on the parish website and bulletin.  Those interested should let Chris or Janey know before October 21, 2019.

Council Nominee Worksheet is attached.
