Don’t be surprised if you hear footsteps behind you...or a ringing telephone! For the next couple of weeks (at least) all will be hearing from a Stewardship Calling Implementation Team member for the purpose of focusing on the best matches between your gifts and the many ministry opportunities to serve our parish and/or needy world around us

 

April 21, 2019
The Team met April 16 for the third Tuesday evening in a row. They reached happy consensus on one last round of personal contact with each parishioner to facilitate good matchups between ministry needs and each person’s gifts and interests. The Team member contacting you will seek to meet briefly in person with you, but if that is not practical, will have a good phone chat to make sure you are matched well with your ministry groups. This temporary Development Team includes Fr. Nathan, Keidi Lewis, Wendy Sakoda, Philip Salibi, Amanda Baillie, Linda Young and Fr. George.

 

April 14, 2019
In an attempt to move quickly towards the implementation of the Stewardship Calling initiative, the temporary Stewardship Calling Implementation team met the past two Tuesdays and made the following decisions:

•The Development Team will have weekly meetings until Holy Week  

•The Team will post weekly bulletin communications with news. They welcome questions and suggestions for these bulletin updates.  

•Due to the need for a chairman to help organize and focus the implementation effort (a temporary job on a temporary working group), Fr. George was chosen by consensus.  

•The Team will attempt to contact every member in person or by phone by early May to confirm his/her preferred ministry choices.  

•This temporary Development Team includes Fr. Nathan, Keidi Lewis, Wendy Sakoda, Philip Salibi, Amanda Baillie, Linda Young and Fr. George.

Nativity Fast
(November 15 - December 24)

The Nativity Fast is divided into two periods. The first period is November 15 through December 19 when the traditional fasting discipline (no meat, poultry, eggs, dairy, fish, wine and oil) is observed with katalysis for wine and oil on Tuesday and Thursday, and for fish, wine and oil on Saturday and Sunday. The second period is December 20 through 24 when the traditional fasting discipline (no meat, poultry, eggs, dairy, fish, wine and oil) is observed Monday through Friday, but with katalysis for wine and oil on Saturday and Sunday. [Katalysis is Greek, meaning “relaxation”.]
