St. Raymond Parish Council Seeks New Members

The Parish Council is a group of nine parishioners who work to advise the Rector in the administration of the parish through recommendations and cooperative decisions.  The council acts as a  representative voice of the faithful members  of St. Raymond.

The Parish Council also works to develop a parish vision, approve the parish budget, set goals, implement action items and evaluate the outcomes. The qualifications to be considered as a Parish Council member are:

  • Candidates must be Roman Catholic.
  • Candidates must be active (attend Mass regularly)
    members of St. Raymond for a minimum of one year.
  • Candidates must be able to attend a monthly meeting
    and be willing to be a member of the Parish Council for a three-year term.

You may nominate yourself, or you may also use the form to nominate someone whom you feel would make a good Parish Council member.

Pope Francis has proclaimed 2015 a Year of Consecrated Life, starting on the First Sunday of Advent November 30, 2014 and ending on February 2, 2016, the World Day of Consecrated Life.

Religious life ought to promote growth in the church by way of attraction. The church must be attractive. Wake up the world! Be witnesses of a different way of doing things, of acting, of living! . . . It is this witness that I expect of you. Religious should be men and women who are able to wake the world up.

—Pope Francis, meeting with the Union of Superiors General, November 29, 2013
