Welcome/Introduction: Teresa welcomed five new members: Bob Viscardi, Neil Neubert, Tom Kohli, Jim Hunt and Donna Bascomb. All members introduced themselves. New members were reminded to send in their bios. Teresa thanked everyone for joining the council.
Minutes for January 9, 2018: The council approved the minutes of the 1/9/18 meeting. The minutes will be posted to the Parish Pastoral Council website.
Solicitations update: Teresa reported there was a solicitation from Family Promise. They requested an opportunity to solicit donations for the 50/50 Raffles and address the congregation on one of the following weekends: 4/7-8, 4/14-15, 4/21-22 and 5/19-20. The council would like the script that should be only 2-3 minutes. The council will check with the rectory regarding the dates and availability.
Financial Report: No update. Tom Kohli is a member of the Finance Council and will update the council quarterly.
Fundraising: Bob Viscardi is a member of the Fundraising Committee and will update the council. The letters and raffles for the Beefsteak were mailed to parishioners.
· Assignment of rolls:
o Recording Secretary – Tom Kohli accepted the position
o Solicitation requests – Donna Bascomb accepted the position
o Communications – Betty Montalbano accepted the position
· Hospitality/Welcome Committee: Irene Glavin attended the meeting and instead of recruiting volunteers suggested using Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Lectors and Greeter/Ushers since they are usually gathered in the back of the church. Perhaps confirmation candidates can also welcome parishioners. Will contact ministries about this. Irene would like to send mailing or visit new parishioners. The council members and Irene would like a booklet explaining all parish ministries with contact information.
· Coffee with the PPC: Last year held in Mary’s Chapel and was well attended. Would like to schedule during Parish Mission with Fr. Jerome. Council members will be needed to help during the Mission. April 22 after the 10:30 mass was suggested for the coffee, but need to check with the rectory if available.
Pastors’ Comments: Msgr. Hubba discussed responsibilities with Fr. Roy and Fr. Joseph for the Triduum and Catholic Schools Week. The film series on Saints is going well.
Closing Prayer: Msgr. Hubba led the council with a closing prayer.
Next meeting: Monday, February 26, 2018 at 7:30p.m.
