Parish Trustee Position

Parish Trustee Position


According to the Wisconsin State Statute regarding Parish Corporate Bylaws, each parish must hold a public election for the position of trustee.  Before the election takes place registered parishioners are     allowed to nominate candidates for the position.  Therefore, I am opening the nomination process for the position of Parish Trustee - Secretary.  This person, along with me and our other trustee, Don Siehoff, will be a legal member of the parish corporation.  Teri Newbury, who currently holds this position, has expressed a willingness to be nominated for another term.  Other candidates for this position must be a practicing parish member and at least 25 years old.  Each trustee serves a two-year term. As pastor, I am allowed to nominate a candidate.   Additional candidates must be nominated in writing by at least 10     active parishioners and submitted to me by Tuesday, November 3rd.  This nomination letter should include the name of the person being nominated and a few sentences about why he/she would be a good trustee.  On the weekend of November 7th & 8th the names of the nominees will be announced and on the following weekend, November 14th & 15th the election for this position will take place during the Masses.  If you have a question regarding the nomination process, please do not hesitate to contact me at the parish office.   


God bless you always!
