One in Christ Area Catholic Community UPDATE
The One In Christ ACC Planning Council is looking for more parish members to become involved in the work of the Stewardship, Evangelization and Young Adult engagement committees of our ACC to share their creative ideas and to foster communication with parishioners. This is an opportunity to participate more deeply in your faith and help drive the direction of our Catholic community.
Contact any one of your parish representatives or your parish office if you are interested or want to learn more.
Fr. Ron Weyrens
Each committee should include at least one member from each parish but that person does not need to be a member of the Planning Council. Each committee will include at least one member of the ACC Planning Council to ensure sufficient communication. We are looking to involve more parish members in the work of the committees for their creative ideas and to foster communication with parishioners. Contact your parish representatives if you are interested.Stewardship Committee is working on education by sharing the book “Stewardship Success” with parish leaders on the Finance and Pastoral Councils and staff.
Evangelization Committee is firming up plans to send a letter from the Planning Council to each parish household and to make follow up calls by fellow parishioners as a form of encouragement, connection, and support, as well as receive any questions about the ACC.
Young Adult Committee shared a proposal to hire a young adult coordinator to serve all four parishes. This proposal will be refined and discussed by the Councils in each parish. No decision has been made. The committee is working on establishing an advisory board and will continue to offer opportunities for young adults to include all four parishes.
Worship Committee is seeking new members to assist with future formation & training for ushers, lectors, servers, etc. along with other liturgy planning.
There was discussion about restructuring the ACC Planning Council to create better connection and collaboration with the ongoing Pastoral Councils in each parish around achieving the shared goals of our ACC while providing for individual parish identity and its own programs and traditions. This will be on the agenda for the next meeting
The next meeting will take place virtually via Zoom on February 2nd, 2021.
