THE NEW PASTORAL COUNCIL MEMBERS begin their service July 1. At St. Peter’s, we
welcome JASON SCHINDLER. MARY DEE SANDEY and SCOTT BAYNES are welcomed back for their second term. At St. Paul’s we welcome KATHY PFLUEGER, DAN COTTON and JOHN HORN. We welcome back BARB HARLANDER for her second term.
I would like to take this opportunity to recognize and thank those who are leaving the Councils
after various numbers of years of faithful service: Julie Theismann, Cynthia Locnikar and Chuck Muehlbauer.
Our pastoral councils meet in joint session several times a year. One of their focuses since the twinning has been the collaboration of our parishes, helping us navigate “change” which is always difficult. The councils have done good work. They continue to help keep each parish vital, but also creatively address our twinned partnership. Council members must have broad vision and open minds! They are eyes and ears that aid the parish staff and me as pastor, and liaison with the rest of the faith community.
