PARISH ADVISORY BOARD - CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
Parish Advisory Board (PAB) members commit to attend bimonthly meetings (currently 2nd Thursday of the month); serve on committees as needed; 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. 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. To nominate either yourself or someone else, please email or call PAB chairperson, Maureen McGinnis, at firstname.lastname@example.org/703-328-1779 or fill out a nomination slip at the back of the church and slip it in the ballot box. When nominating someone, please include the nominee’s full name, phone number, and email address. The nomination period closes at the end of the day on Sunday, Jan. 24th. Each candidate will be asked to provide a brief biography (100-120 words) and picture for the “Meet the Candidates” insert that will be in the bulletin and available on the OLQP website.
PARISH OFFICE HAS MOVED FOR RENOVATION
Continuing with the Capital Campaign, the Parish Office Building is scheduled to be renovated next. The main office has been moved to our new temporary location at 1915 S Edgewood St. If stairs are not an issue, please use back gated entrance next to rectory. Unfortunately, the temporary office is not completely accessible so please call before dropping by if this is an issue so we can find a way to accommodate you. We expect to be back in the regular office space shortly after the first of the new year. Through this month’s transition office operations will continue, but we ask that you contact us by phone and email rather than drop by. Please continue to use the regular parish mailing address to send mail: 2700 19th St S, Arlington VA 22204

VOLUNTEER WEBMASTER NEEDED
OLQP is looking for a computer savvy volunteer to take over the responsibilities of webmaster. The time commitment most weeks is 1- 1 1/2 hours Friday evening or Saturday with the goal of having the website updated before the vigil Mass on Saturday night. There will be occasional additional work required when there is a need to post information on an emergency basis (eg. weather-related cancellations) or when ministries wish to update their web pages. Excellent attention to detail is essential, some Spanish is helpful, knowledge of HTML and programming are helpful but not essential as the parish uses a WYSIWYG platform. Basic orientation will be provided by the current webmaster. If interested, please contact Fr. Tim or the parish office.
