"Welcoming, charitable, and empowered
to live the Gospel"
Our Mother of Good Counsel,
located in Bryn Mawr, PA,
just 20 minutes west of Philadelphia,
You may have noticed that for the last few weeks, in the bulletin and on the website, you have been urged to “Save the Date” of April 6th for a parish meeting. There is no urgent reason for this meeting. Rather it is the result of a very fruitful Parish Council discussion. Last Spring, the Parish Council decided to review its Bylaws. The Bylaws, which were written in the 1980’s, provide for an annual “parish wide” meeting. Apparently such a meeting was held only once or twice.
Parish Council decided that it would like to host such a meeting and I fully endorse the idea. Such a meeting would serve as a good follow up to the Visioning journey that the parish took four years ago. In addition, the meeting will provide the opportunity for you to share your thoughts about our parish, for me to share our financial report, for information on the parish’s many ministries to be available, and to view a 15-minute video from the Archdiocese on the archdiocesan wide Parish Planning process. There are no anticipated outcomes for the meeting, nor anything to be decided. This is simply another opportunity to build community in our parish.
Our meeting will be held in the Gym from 12:30pm to 3:00pm. We will begin with a light lunch. So, if you can make it, which I hope you can, we will need to know how many are coming. If you can attend, please let us know by Friday, March 28th. Either call the office, email us at email@example.com, complete the response form (download HERE) and mail it in or drop it in the collection basket, or best of all, submit this online form now! I hope to see you there.
