Meet our new Administrator
and Future Pastor
next weekend masses.
LETTER FROM FATHER ZUKAS
Dear Friends in Christ,
Praised be Jesus Christ!! As I have now spent one month as your “Administrator for now.” What a coincidence that on the last day of my first month, I received a phone call from the Clergy Personnel office to be told that an administrator / future pastor had been chosen for the St. Ann / St. Brendan Collaborative. Praised be Jesus Christ indeed! I am quite confident that you will demonstrate to Fr. Jason Makos the same “radical hospitality” you demonstrated to me. Now that your future has been given a course, I ask you to, first of all, pray for Fr. Makos as he assumes his new responsibilities and, second of all, to pray about how you personally may offer your time, talent, and treasure to a greater degree in service of the parish. The future has been made clearer for you. It is now up to you, the parishioners, to invest in it.
May God bless you and your loved ones.
Sincerely, Fr. Stephen Zukas
St. Ann—St. Brendan Collaboration
As the pastoral plan of the Archdiocese unfolds, St. Ann and St. Brendan are scheduled to begin collaboration on June 3, 2014 as part of "Phase Two" of the plan. What exactly does this mean? Both parishes will remain open under one pastor and his pastoral staff. Since the collaboration team of the Archdiocese in Phase Two, is combining forty four parishes into twenty one collaboratives, it is a huge undertaking to select pastors and their associate priests for all of them. It is hoped that all the new pastors will be named by Christmas. Each parish will retain its own assets and its own separate finance council. The collections taken up each week-end will go into that parish’s bank account, to pay that parish’s bills. There will be one parish council for both parishes, made up of parishioners from each parish. Each parish will retain its name and identity, finances, books, and financial obligations. There is more information available on the website: www.disciplesinmission.com.
