Pastoral Council election canceled

Dear Saint Joseph Parishioners,
As stated in the weekly bulletins and the Church website, we had two vacancies to fill on the Pastoral Council. The deadline for nominations was October 31, 2013. I received only two nominations by the stated deadline.
Due to the minimal response, the Pastoral Council voted on whether or not to have an election under these circumstances. The Council came to a unanimous decision to dispense with the election since each of the nominees would have been elected with just one vote. In future elections, we will make more information available to the Parish through announcements at Mass in addition to statements in the bulletins, so that we might encourage more participation in these significant Parish events.
At this time, please welcome Mary Beth Shagena and Shelley Heiserman as your two new Pastoral Council members. We are all excited to continue our mission in assisting Father with the future of our Parish.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. We thank you for your support.
God Bless,
Cassandra Scott,
Pastoral Council Chair
