PARISH ADVISORY BOARD - CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
Did you know OLQP has elected lay leadership that supports Fr. Tim and parish activities? Parish Advisory Board members commit to attend bimonthly meetings (currently 2nd Thursday of the month); serve on committees as needed; and listen to and present parishioners’ views and perspectives. The PAB strives to be a body that represents the many backgrounds, ages, mass cohorts and ministry groups of the parish. Six seats are up for election, each for a two-year term. Actively participating, Roman Catholic registered members who have been active for at least two years are eligible and encouraged to consider the PAB – nominate yourself or a fellow member. Nomination slips are now available in the sanctuary or you may submit nominations via e-mail to email@example.com (Please include the nominee's full name, phone number and e-mail address). The nomination period closes at the end of the day Sunday, February 2. Each candidate is asked to provide a brief biography (100-120 words) and picture for the “Meet the Candidates” insert that will be in the February 22/23 bulletin and available on the OLQP website.
