The Annual Parish Meeting is an integral part of our life together. This year's meeting will be held on Sunday, January 29th, at 9:00 a.m. The morning includes reflection on the past year through written and verbal reports, elections for new vestry and convention delegates, and the presentation of the 2023 budget.
In 2021, the Annual meeting was conducted entirely via Zoom. Last year for the first time ever, we offered the meeting in a hybrid format. This year, members may attend online to ensure maximum participation, but we hope you will make every effort to be present in person. We are pleased to announce that childcare will be available for the duration of the meeting and encourage members with small children to join us.
Please expect an email from me next week with information about those standing for election. The Annual Parish Meeting booklet, along with the Zoom invite, will arrive in the @Ascension email next Thursday, January 26th. Please hold our preparation and the meeting in your prayers, and I hope you plan to attend this pivotal event in whatever capacity you are able.
