I may sound obsessed about Parish Council lately but it’s so necessary. There are 4 vacancies. We need people who can think "big picture" and plan ahead for a growth in ministries that don't require a priest's attention. More than ever, these are your parishes. Who understands how boards of directors work? They don't create the bake sale or dinner, they recruit the people who will run those events on a long-term basis. Our parishes need to chart a course not based on Fr. Bill's direction, but on what was clearly expressed in the Synod Listening Sessions. Step up!
