Dear Parishioner
St. James Church is currently in the process of determining the future direction of the parish. This is being undertaken at the request of Parish Council, as it has been five years since the last set of goals and priorities were established. This process will result in the formation of a Mission Statement, as well as the identification of short and long-term goals.
We need your involvement. Our Mission Statement Steering Committee has developed an exercise so that all members of the parish can play an active role in the development of the Mission Statement, and the goals which will accompany it. The Committee has scheduled sessions to conduct this exercise with the established groups that meet regularly within the parish.
We have also scheduled a special meeting for everyone who does not currently belong to a parish group. Please accept my open invitation to participate in this important exercise. The meeting will be on Monday, March 3rd, 7:30 p.m. in the Townsend Room, which is located in the Church Hall. You need not bring anything to this meeting other than your desire to participate. Materials for the exercise will be provided, and the session should last about two hours.
If you are unable to attend the scheduled meetings, you can still participate in this process by calling the Parish Office at 477-6770 to leave a message for the Mission Statement Steering Committee. We will then get in touch with you to bring your thoughts into this parish-wide initiative.
Share your ideas, dreams and hopes with us at St. James. Thank you.
On behalf of Carmon Stone and the Mission Statement Steering Committee,
Yours Sincerely,
Archdeacon Rod Gillis
