Call for Nominations
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be on a diocesan committee?
Serving on a diocesan committee will give you the opportunity to: serve God in a different way, work more closely with others in our diocese, participate in a way that allows you to grow spiritually and personally, and have some fun. You will have the opportunity to use your spiritual gifts in a manner that will provide you with additional insight into how our diocese operates.
We are looking for fresh perspectives, new thinking, and people who are interested in dedicating a finite amount of time to working toward greater health and vitality in this diocese.
At this year's convention, we will be electing people for Diocesan Council (one priest and one lay), Standing Committee (one priest and one lay), and the Constitution and Canons Committee (one priest and one lay). A list of diocesan committees and descriptions for each is at: http:/www.dionwpa.org/our-diocese/governance.
If you have people from your congregation that you think would be interested in any of the committees, please submit them on the provided forms to the Standing Committee who will, in turn, contact them to help discern their desire to serve Our Lord in a different manner.
Please submit forms to the Standing Committee by September 20, 2017. They should be mailed to Anne Bardol (email@example.com) or sent by mail to the Diocesan Church Center (145 W. 6th St., Erie PA 16501).
Thank you for your consideration.
