Report by one or more of the Trustees– 4 minutes GK New Business In recent months, we have had a number of conflicts or near conflicts between the Council and Assembly regarding Parish Rules, especially those applicable to the sale of tickets, chances or other items at tables after the weekend Masses. In an effort to eliminate or reduce to a minimum these conflicts, we think it advisable to review those rules and procedures so that all our members fully understand the limitations that we operate under. While Fr. Larry as Pastor is in charge of all operations, he has delegated certain tasks and responsibilities to members of the Parish Staff. Those we interact with most frequently are Kim Seales, Office Manager (x103; [email protected]), Stacey Pincus (x105; [email protected]) and Pilar Dougall (x109; [email protected]). Kim is in charge of scheduling and the use of rooms and locations on the Parish campus. These include our meetings and events as well as the use of tables in front of Church after weekend Masses. Stacey is in charge of things liturgical. These include scheduling of special Masses, announcements by the Priest from the altar at the end of Mass, presentations before Mass from the altar and content of any liturgy events, such as songs, readings, etc. The annual Memorial Mass & Corporate Communion Sundays are to be coordinated with Stacey. Making a presentation before Mass from the altar is subject to limitations on time and content. Pilar is the editor and publisher of the Parish Bulletin. Requests for announcements to be printed in the Bulletin, the monthly Knights of Columbus page in the Bulletin must all be placed through Pilar. As with other publications, the Bulletin has a lead time of at least two weeks. Often it is necessary for these ladies to coordinate their activities with each other. It should not be a surprise that a request to one of them might draw a response from another, combined or independent. As noted above, in recent weeks and months, the use of tables in front of Church has been a source of conflict or potential conflict. The general rule since last Spring has been that the use of one to two tables may be reserved by Parish organizations for up to 4 weeks. No organization may have more than two tables at any time. Tables are available to parish organizations on a first-come first-served basis. The use of a table is limited to a single event or function. The Knights are provided with one table at each Sunday morning Mass for the sale of newspapers. That means the Knights may only have one additional table in addition to the newspaper table if available. When Knights are selling tickets for an event, such as the Rosary Dinner October 10, they may not sell chances for Football Mania, pancake breakfasts, coupon books or other events at the same time from these tables in front of Church. Further, the Parish is treating both the Council and the Assembly as K of C entities. So if the Assembly has a table for ticket sales, it may not be used for the Council and vice versa. As this process will probably create future conflicts, we are recommending that requests for room space made by Assembly or Council members be through the Faithful Navigator for the Assembly or the Grand Knight for the Council. If there is a conflict, then those officers will sort it out and assign the needed priority. In short, we cannot have any member racing to be first to secure space to the detriment of the whole. 8:35 Brother Bill Pettit Lecture -‐ 6 minutes 8:41 DGK – Good of the Order – 1 minute Guards – 50/50 – 2 minutes 8:45 GK Closing Prayer – Serran Prayer for Vocations • O God, Who wills not the death of a sinner, but rather that he be converted and live, grant we beseech you, through the intercession of the Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, Saint Joseph, her spouse, Blessed Junipero Serra and all the saints, an increase of laborers for Your Church, fellow laborers with Christ to spend and consume themselves for souls, through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with you, In the unity of the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen. Thereafter, we will adjourn to the outer room for snacks, soft drinks and fraternity.
