Transition Team Updates and QA
Transition Team News: The Transition Team met this past Tuesday evening, and discussed the Mass schedule for the holy days that require a special schedule. We also discussed the name for our cluster, and settled upon Rich Spring Prairie Catholic Community. This name will be used to distinguish us from other clusters in the Diocese, as well as to set up a website for areas of collaboration and with our future common bulletin. This led to the final discussion about areas that our three parishes can work together. The Transition Team will be bringing these areas to the respective Parish Councils and will finalize them at the next (and final for now) meeting on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 in Jacobs Prairie. In the meantime, the Transition Team will publish some Frequently Asked Questions in each parish’s bulletin until July 1.
FAQ: What is going to happen to our parish bulletin? – The Transition Team is working on the question of whether to have a shared bulletin or individual bulletins. In the event of a shared bulletin, the existing contracts will be honored, and upon their expiration, will be re-negotiated.
FAQ: If we are not going to merge, why are we talking about sharing programs and resources? – Combining programs across parishes makes sense when strengthening a program requires hiring a professional, which can be a challenge for a small parish. Bringing in the right professional can help existing leaders within the parishes to become even better. Combining programs may also help the pastor of multiple parishes by reducing the number of people under his direct supervision. Having strong lay ecclesial ministers helps the pastor to share the burden of leadership.
