Over the next few weeks we will be gathering in our individual congregations to appoint and endorse Wardens, Treasurers and other congregational leaders at our annual Vestry meetings. These are very important and sometimes difficult tasks which are given to people we trust.
In an effort to help them, as well as anyone interested in the administrative aspect of our congregational life, I have set aside some time on Saturday 3 February 2018 for a “Warden’s Workshop” to take place at St. John’s Church, Copper Cliff from 10 am to 2 pm. Topics will include a look at the Canons which apply to the position of Warden, a suggestion of some ‘self-care’ methods, and some practical advice on conducting meetings.
It is my hope that by gathering together, the Wardens in this Deanery will be strengthened in their particular ministry. I realize this is a sort of ‘last minute’ kind of invitation but I urge those of you who are Wardens, Deputy Wardens, Chairpersons, Treasurers to consider attending.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to attend. A lunch will be provided for those who reply.
It is my hope that this will be just the first of a series of similar gatherings.
