Annual Parish Meeting
Sunday, January 31
Established by the Canons and Constitutions of the Episcopal Church, the Annual Parish Meeting is always an important day in the life of any congregation. We use this time together as an opportunity to reflect on the year past, and to ponder the year just beginning. We will elect new members of the Vestry and adopt the annual parish budget. Just as importantly, we will also ponder matters spiritual, the ways in which we are fulfilling, or hope to fulfill, God's call to us in our ministry, fellowship, worship and outreach. This year, the Wardens will report on the result of the simple parish survey performed last summer, and discuss ways in which the Vestry will engage those findings in 2016. In addition, other parish leaders will provide a variety of perspectives about our various ministries and programs. In short, at the Annual Parish Meeting, we reflect on the directions in which God is nudging us, and, in general, hear and retell together part of the story of Church of the Holy Comforter.
The Annual Meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. in the Great Room following a slightly abbreviated 9:00 Eucharist. I encourage you to make every effort to participate in order that our deliberations and reflections might include as much of the wider congregation as possible.
Please note that there will be no 11:15 Eucharist on January 31.
