"Thank you for the two new members of our Parish Pastoral council; Mary Darling of St. Jerome and Donna Maingot of St. Alphonsus.   We have two members from each church community.

Two Sundays ago, the ballots for nomination of candidates were handed out. Normally you would have the ballot for election today. But the situation is not normal!

          Warkworth nominated STELLA  TRACEY. Stella has accepted and is therefore  member of the Pastoral Council.  Since no other name was proposed, there is no need for the second step of the process.

          Wooler nominated  ROSEMARY  MORAN.   Rosemary has accepted and is therefore member of the Pastoral Council. Since no other name was proposed, there is no need for the second step of the process

          Brighton nominated BOB  O’NEIL. Bob has accepted and is therefore member of the Pastoral Council. Another name was proposed but that person had previously refused. A third name was presented but out the time of nomination. There is, therefore, no need for the second step of the process.   

June 7, 2009

As was announced, three members of the Pastoral Council have asked to step down to give others the opportunity to serve at this level. A very big thanks to Ricardo Melendro (Brighton), who has acted as chairman, to Maureen O’Grady (Warkworth), and to Pat McCauley (Wooler) for the tremendous service offered to the commuity. Starting from scratch, they have been able to leave a solid foundation to build on.

The process of election has begun. Last Sunday, the ballots for nomination were handed out. If all goes well, next Sunday will be the voting ballot.
