Title: Program Encouraging People to Volunteer for Seats on the Archdiocesan Pastoral Council
Type of proposal: Program for endorsement
Date of submission: 11/27/13
Proponents: Jim Moudry, Bonnie Strand, Paula Ruddy
Description: The Archbishop is in the process of implementing an APC he decreed in a Clergy Bulletin, dated July 1, 2013, but did not announce generally. Priests on the Presbyteral Council discussed the statute governing the APC on November 19. They recommended amendments and the matter will be taken up by priests in deanery meetings in February. When the final statute is determined and the plan implemented, proponents will encourage people who will take our concerns to the APC to seek seats on the APC. Proponents will focus on 3 deaneries.
Date of Council decision: 12/3/13
Decision: Unanimously Endorsed
Current status: Call Paula at 612-315-3599 for current report
