from the Sr. Warden - September 2014
I hope you have had an opportunity to either attend or listen to the All Parish Forums conducted by Fr. Hall and by your Vestry last month (see the links below). It was good to hear Fr. Hall share with all of us your comments about what you appreciate at St. Boniface, and then to hear about the exciting programming for the fall and spring.
With technology at St. Boniface moving ahead at lightning speed, we were able to stream the Forums live, as well as place them on our web site for future viewing. We are working toward providing this same technology for future church services and special events, giving those who are unable to enjoy the community of our worship services a continuing connection to their family at St. Boniface.
I’d like to add a word about the Vestry’s Forum on management of your gifts. Please know that the Vestry functions to serve the parish of St. Boniface, so that we as a church, may better serve God and His people. Know also, that we are committed to transparency and responsible decision making, as we manage the generosity of your gifts. We are presently working on ways to keep you periodically informed about the status of the budget.
The Vestry meetings, held on the third Thursday of each month in the Parish Hall, are open to those who might be interested. As stated in our By Laws, however, your attendance comes with no voice or vote. Should you have an issue to be presented at any meeting, please see our Rector.
Thanks for being patient as we grow into a bright future. Together, we have many hearts and lives to touch with God’s love. May God Bless this church.
