2012~Good Transitions

All Committee Night

ALL COMMITTEE NIGHT: A 2012 New Transition

This past year St. Bernard parishioners experienced a

wealth of transitions – the start of our parish’s second century,

a new pastor, new responses at Mass, new school,

new parish members and the return of former members.

Now that we’re all getting comfy with these 2011 transitions,

the St. Bernard Parish committees will begin – All

Committee Night! Starting January 25, 2012, and on the

4th Wednesday of each month, all the parish committees –

Human Concerns, Prayer & Worship, Stewardship, Finance,

Christian Formation (formerly Lifelong Faith Formation)

and Building & Grounds -- will meet for fellowship

at 6:15pm in the Griffey Center and then at 7pm breakout

into separate meeting spaces.

The goal of the St. Bernard All Committee Night is to

more effectively use everyone’s time, energy and resources;

to grow new membership and to encourage cooperation,

communication, ride sharing and fellowship. This

All Committee Night model has worked well in other parishes

saving janitorial, security and electrical resources.

We are excited to initiate it at St. Bernard.

Watch the bulletin,

The Messenger and our website for

additional information. And send a prayer or two for successful

transitions into 2012.

Fr. Mike Barrett, Pastor, and

Pat Brophy, Chair, Parish Council
