Parish Council Minutes Tuesday, November 14, 7:00 PM

Father opened the meeting with a prayer at 7:00 PM

Mary reported that since Paycor, the company that the Diocese contracted to do all the payrolls for the Diocese, was costing us $42.00 per payroll (twice a month) to do three checks, we have switched and our checks will be submitted by St. Brendan.  We will have a small fee from them but it will be much less than doing the checks ourselves.  Our finances are good shape.

Ann reported that our youth that are going to NCYC will leave Thursday.  She reminded us that November 26 at 6:00 pm is the NCYC Stock Holders Dinner. The youth will share their experiences from their trip after dinner.

Father shared that Don Bormann came to the office and said that the air conditioner of the house south of our Education property extends onto our property a few feet.  He is going to contact the Diocese’s lawyer on handling the situation. We would like to get the property line set.

Ben asked if it was ok to have a Christmas Choir.  He and Meredith are going to work together with the choir. Everyone supported the idea. There will be a meeting for all those interested on November 29 at 6:00. He also requested that the lectors check the microphone before mass to be sure it is on.

Father asked about the starting time of Halloween mass.  We asked for opinions but got very little response. Time will remain at 5:00.

Jim Kempker presented a statement prepared by the FOF Committee.  The latest conceptual building plan, presented by the Building Committee for consideration, would add an additional 3800 sq.ft. to the current Fr. Offutt Education Center.  This is an increase of 1300 square feet from the original concept as a result of a more detailed needs assessment and continued growth.  A discussion ensued as to the limitations of the existing lot, CCD program needs, other groups utilizing the building, and funding of the additional space.  No action was taken.  The matter will be discussed further at the next meeting.

Knights are planning for their annual Shrimp Fest at the end of January.

St. Anne’s had a successful Basket Bingo with an income of $8917.25 and a profit of $7213.71.

Shawn reported that one of the AC units at the MPB will have to be looked at in the Spring as it seemed to not be working correctly at the end of the season. Jim reported that the scrubber used in the MPB is not working.  He will look into getting it fixed.       Closing Prayer at 8:05.
