The small group meetings to take the Parish Survey have been very successful. Over seventy surveys have been submitted to date. The last small group meetings will be held at 9:00 and 11:15 next Sunday, September 23rd and walk-ins are welcome.
If you haven’t been able to attend yet, please sign up, attend one of the meetings and complete the survey. If you would like to reserve a spot in a small group meeting and cannot make it to church to sign up, contact Michael Harrigian at (626) 441-0787 or email@example.com.
The survey provides an opportunity to express your view of St. Edmund’s as it is today and your hopes for its future and it is vital that everyone participate in order to ensure a complete and accurate description of our parish for new rector candidates. The results of the survey will be compiled, presented to the parish and used by the Search Committee in identifying the permanent rector best suited to our needs.
SECOND PHASE CONTINUES
During this phase, it will be important to remain active in our parish life, not just in the transition events, but also by attending services regularly; participating in the summer socials, adult education and other parish ministries; attending the fall fundraiser on October 13th; keeping your pledges current; and sharing your questions and concerns with the Transition Committee.
