              Pastoral Council Elections
              Terms up for Greg Smith. Andy Galbus has resigned his position.
              Two running for positions on the council are Galen Neuzil and Colette
There will also be space for write-in candidates. Since there are two
openings, I’ll check the write-in candidates to fill the third vacancy. The
alternative is that I appoint someone.
Ballots will be in pews during all Masses—to be counted following 10:30
Sunday Mass by Bill Morrison, Greg Smith and Andy Galbus. The ballots
and results are to be presented to me in a sealed envelope.

Election of Officers

Since there is no Pastoral meeting in July or August, election of new
officers will be held at the September meeting. If the need arises, an
emergency meeting can be called.

Constitution and By-laws

I will be working on the constitution and by-laws for the Holy Family
Pastoral Council with my administrative assistant this summer in
preparing a complete and working constitution that guide the members for
the following year. I will hold a workshop with the chair, vice-chair and
secretary (executive board) on Roberts Rules of Order, the constitution
and the by-laws. My administrative assistant will be helping me with this.


Finance Council discussed the budget and Dr. Greg Angstman will be
reporting on it for the 2007-2008 fiscal year and beyond.

CK-HF Personnel Board

Dr. Greg Angstman, Teresa Prond and I will be meeting with the
bookkeeper on Saturday, June 23, taking the budget into account with
staffing proposals.

Staff Meetings

Staff meetings to include all staff are scheduled to be held on a regular
basis through the 2007-2008 fiscal year.

Scheduling/calendaring meeting was held on Wednesday, June 20, 2007,
for both parishes to put all dates on the master and online calendars. This
will completed once the Faith Formation Commission and Faith
Formation Staff finalize their annual schedules.

Schedules for meetings for the next fiscal year:
       Finance Council—July 12, 2007, October 11, 2007, January 10,
2008 and April 10, 2008
        Pastoral Council – 3rd Thursday of every month except July,
August and December
        Our Pastoral Council Commission, with members from both
parishes, called the Combined Faith Formation Commission –2nd Tuesday
of every month and will give written reports to the Pastoral Council;
verbal reports will be given on occasion


1. I would like to thank Andy Galbus and Greg Smith personally and on
behalf of the whole parish, for their dedication and service as responsible
pastoral council members during their term, and the stewardship of their
time and talent shared with the community.

2. I’d also like to thank Julianne Angstman and Nadine Sullivan for all
they have done as CCW officers, as well as all the women of the parish
who helped them accomplish their tasks during the past year. Through
their stewardship of time and talent, all members of our parish have
benefited immensely.

3. Thanks to Susan Reihl, Doreen Coleman, and all of the volunteers who
made Faith Formation such a great success during the last school year.

4. I would like to welcome the new chair, Ellen Allen, to the Pastoral
Council. Her new vice-chair is Lois Dorschner. At this printing, I don’t
know who the secretary or the treasurer of the CCW will be, and I’m
looking forward to hearing from the CCW who has taken over these very
important roles in the mission of Holy Family.

5. A pot luck will be held to thank those exiting positions, and to
welcome those who have recently stepped up to assume leadership roles in
the parish. Fr. Surprenant, Ellen A., and Rose C. to organize the event to
be held in September.

Working Building and Maintenance Commission

In our Pastoral Council constitution, there will be an acknowledgement
that there will be working commissions formed. One has been established
already—the Combined Faith Formation Commission which is up and
running. A second need is a Building and Maintenance Commission. The
constitution will outline the guidelines for each commission. Joe Allen’s
name was discussed as a possible chair for the commission.
           As the administrator of these parishes, I am very fortunate to have Sue
           Pries as my assistant. Among her many duties, she is to be supportive of
           the four councils and their commissions. Under my guidance, she will be
           always encouraging that the work and action items of the councils be done
           in a timely manner. She will know the Pastoral Council’s constitution and
           by-laws and she will know the Finance Council’s constitution and by-
           laws. Therefore she will be very helpful to the workings of the councils
           and commissions, and also, the executive boards and chair persons. This
           is an awesome task but she is readily available to our parishes’ pastoral
           office. She can reached at these two numbers during working hours,
           (507-634-7520) (507-775-6455) and I know she will assist outside office
           hours as needed.
