"Consultation by Clergy Placement Board"was the only business on the agenda for the Parish Council meeting tonight at 7pm.
In his column, our pastor elaborated.
"This Thursday, a representative from the Clergy Placement Board will be meeting with the Parish Council to discuss the procedure for the transition of a new pastor. The meeting is expected to last about two hours. The purpose is to have a dialogue as to what qualities and talents the new pastor should have to meet the needs of our parish."Since I had, as a parish member, attended the Parish Council Pastor Replacement Consultation back on March 13, 2007 (see my earlier post) I thought I'd attend.
Though there was nothing in the bulletin to indicate this would be any more of a problem than last time, since I had checked in advance last time I again checked with the parish if it was okay to attend. This time the parish checked with our Archdiocese of Milwaukee and it turns out the meeting is supposed to be open to parish staff and parish council only.
I look forward to seeing what report we parishioners receive from the Consultation.
