Shawn Sharpeta has stepped down due to other commitments and responsibilities. 2. Mike again expressed the desire to be relieved as President. Since we did not have quorum, we did not nominate a candidate and did not vote for Vice President. We will discuss that at another meeting in the near future. Update on Committees & Liaisons 1. Officially, Mike announced Mrs. Erma Protokowicz s retirement from the Outreach/Service Committee. This will leave a hole that will not be easily filled. Not only will we all miss the tremendous energy she devoted to ensuring that the neediest of our community were served, but she also inspired all of us to think more deeply and creatively about the roles, we play individually and collectively in our Parish. 2. Mike provided a list of potential candidates for the presiding officer of this committee to Father Joseph Simmons. Father Simmons will individually get their feedback and commitment for committee leadership. 3. Education - The meeting has not taken place yet this year because of Sister Susanne s knee surgery.

2 Update on Archbishop s Annual Appeal During Lent, Father is going to conduct a onesacrament per week discussion of the sacraments. He will couple these sessions with Stations of the Cross on Monday evenings at 7 pm. 4. Youth Ministry - Sister Susanne reported everything there is fine. 5. Evangelization - We have the DVD of Thy Word, a 30-minute documentary on the new translation of the Roman Missal. Considerations have been given to copyright of it in our Web link page. We are checking in this matter. 6. Finance - Father Simmons oversees the preparation of financial reports, directs investment activities, and implements cash management strategies in conjunction with Finance committee members. 7. Liturgy Mike questioned why the Eucharistic Ministers who administer the wine position themselves at the far end aisles and leave the center aisle uncovered. Father responded that he was still not completely at ease offering the wine for health reasons, and that nobody has ever asked about having a third Eucharistic Minister. 1. Father Simons attended a workshop on how to obtain our participation and commitment to the Archbishop s Annual Appeal. We are asked to participate in helping the Archbishop fund various ministries throughout the archdiocese. Holy Spirit parish receives a 25% rebate. The first and second weekend of February is for those who did not receive the Appeal information through the mail. 2. Father Simmons mentioned the mechanics of conducting an in-pew solicitation: a. Ushers pass out pledge envelopes. b. While they are filling out the envelopes, emphasize that every gift is important, no matter how large or small. c. Give everyone a moment to fill out the pledge form. Give them enough time. Final synopsis on Giving Tree 1. It was a successful and delightful experience and very rewarding. Letter of appreciation were received from the schools. Well done, Susan & Amanda!!! a. Future Recommendation: sorting the gifts by family so every child gets equal amounts of everything (food, clothes, etc). Bull Roast 1. Little was mentioned. Selling tickets Sunday after Father Simmons Additional Comments Mass, has been quite slow. 1. Parish Planning in the Archdiocese of Baltimore requests to identify a Parish Leadership Team. This Parish Leadership Team will consist of: the Pastor and four lay members of the parish, at least three of Page 2 of 3

3 whom must be chosen from: Corporators, Pastoral Council, Finance Committee, or the Chair of another parish committee. This team will assist both the parish and the Archdiocese in planning for the future. 2. The Harford Catholic Assembly decided to engage in pastoral planning collectively and then identified five recommendations for this planning. In order of priority, the topics are: 1. Allocation of Priests 2. Lay Ecclesial Ministry 3. Life-Long Faith Formation 4. Sharing equipment / personnel 5. Management Efficiencies 3. Father Simmons expressed high expectations for the new building to nourish adult evangelization. 4. Father would like to find a volunteer to compile the Bulletin every week and free up more of Kathy Meneghini s time. Next Meeting The next Parish Council meeting will be the last Wednesday in March (the 28th) at 7:00 PM at the Holy Spirit Church. Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned at 8:45 PM. Action Items: Approval Minutes Process: Mike Perrone asked that Draft Minutes would be sending to him from the person who drafted the minutes. He will review it and will amend any particular issues that can be resolved previous to release it to the rest of the Council. After his review, Mike will send it out, and ask the Pastoral Council members to approve or suggest any amendments. In the event that many amendments are suggested, the minutes will be presented for the assembly's approval at the next meeting. Mike decided to table any further discussion of amendments to the Constitution until after completing the CPA exam. Unfinished business: Picnic and the creation of Name Badges. Page 3 of 3
