with emphasis on Leadership and Spirituality

and Participation and Communication

Ann Martinmaki met with the Stewardship Commission.  They discussed youth involvement and the upcoming mission at St. Mary of the Lake.  They also discussed the five practices of Leadership in Context in preparation for the Evaluation and Planning Retreat that will be held on Saturday, November 21st.

PARISH LIFE COMMISSION

We spoke about the importance of identifying where the problem is in each of our parishes that prevents parishioners from being more active in the cluster and in their respective parishes.  We need to find a way to empower the people to do more.

PEACE/SOCIAL JUSTICE

As a commission we discussed those important Social Justice issues affecting our local community and affecting the global economy and human rights concerns in Central America.  They are:

  Act to extend Unemployment Benefits for fourteen more weeks.

  Help to secure housing for the homeless.

  Close the Schools of Americas.

Each commission member received a paper asking them to call their Senator, Representative and the President and to invite other members of their family to do likewise.

SPIRITUALITY/WORSHIP

We discussed Youth Ministry and the need for more adult leaders to work with our young people.

STEWARDSHIP

We discussed the traditional mission at St. Mary of the Lake-general idea is our faith unfolding as disciples.

We want to assist in making the evaluation meeting more prayerful.
