Parish Council Minutes August 14, 7:00 PM

Father opened the meeting with a prayer.   Shawn welcomed new member Brian Korb.

Election of officers was held and Shawn Carrico will be the new president and Jim Kempker vice-president.

Mary discussed the reports that the members received and pointed out that the property insurance was paid this month for $6,156.00.  She reported that the church received $529.44 in interest on our CD’s.  Jim presented the comparison chart of the budget and actual income and expenses. We came out well for the year as we took in more than we budgeted and spent less.  FOF accounts brought in $1,316.55 in interest that was rolled over into their CDs.

Ann reported that CCD will start August 29. She was pleased that she has enough teachers for the year. The council approved her budget for next year.

Parish Council sent a letter to the diocese asking for help in writing a 5 year plan and received a reply that they would be willing to work with the council. A meeting date has not been set. Copies of the letters will be in the bulletin.

St. Anne Sodality will host the Parish picnic on August 12. The picnic will be held at the South Shelter in the city park. The committee feels that there is more for the kids to do at the park than at the Knights Property. More details will follow.

The Knights are planning something for those that have served as servers in Mass over the last year. More details coming.

Discussion was held on quarterly maintenance of the HVAC system. Shawn is going to get bids on the cost for a contract to have the units checked quarterly.

Father was asked if he had set up a schedule for getting help with masses as the Bishop recommended. He will be doing that in the future.

Talk was held on the Bishop’s recommendation that we start thinking about a new church.  More will be known after the council meets with the Diocese.

The Knights will have their Shrimp Boil on August 4 at the Knights property. The new Knights building is framed. Building is going well.

St. Anne Sodality will have their quarterly board meeting Tuesday, July 17th at 7:00 at the Offutt Bldg.

Father closed the meeting with a prayer at 7:55.
