As we transition into the structure of the Bayside Mission, it will be increasingly important that we promote our connectedness throughout the parishes of the Bayside Mission whilst maintaining the strong sense of identity we have at St. Joseph's and Stella Maris churches.
Therefore, at Nazareth Catholic Parish, we are seeking to expand both the Pastoral Council and the Stewardship Committee and are calling on nominations for both.
The Pastoral Council serves as a consultative body whose main purpose is to investigate, reflect and reach conclusions about pastoral matters to recommend to the parish priest.
The Stewardship Committee is a sub-committee to both the Pastoral Council and Finance Committee that harness the gifts of Time, Talent and Treasure for the work of God among us. The committee supports the various ministries and coordinates the Thanksgiving program.
We invite you to contribute your God-given strengths and abilities in support of Nazareth Catholic Parish and as Fr. Cartwright has said in recent homilies, ‘Do Not Be Afraid, Open Wide the Doors of Bayside to Jesus Christ’.
“Just a reminder that all volunteers and other personnel are required to hold and link to the parish, a current Working With Children Check and sign both Nazareth Catholic Parish Commitment Statement and Code of Conduct”
Nominations can be sent to:
Fr David Cartwright and Fr Dean Mathieson, [email protected]
Michael Staunton, Nazareth Catholic Parish Pastoral Council [email protected]
Lynn Chen, Nazareth Catholic Parish Secretary [email protected]
In these extraordinary times where our lives have been turned upside down by COVID-19 and we are living under the strain of prolonged restrictions, it is more important than ever to bring the strength of our community to those who are suffering most.
