Letter from Fr. Jim – Announcement

Dear People of God,

I hope and pray that all is well with you and your loved ones as we continue to enjoy the blessings of Summer!

Just as surely as we evidenced on that first Easter morning, passion, death and resurrection are but one event at St. Polycarp Church. God has provided a new Financial Manager to our parish. After interviews with viable candidates, our search committee has discerned the next member of our Professional Staff.

Laura Pajerowski is no stranger to our parish. She and her husband, Bob, are registered worshippers with our community. Laura has previously served as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion and Sacristan. She has always been a model of integrity and faith.

Laura has decades of experience with fiscal responsibilities. This will be an asset to our community. We are indeed grateful for her stewardship of the gifts that God has entrusted to her care. Please keep her in your prayers as she prepares to care for our material resources.

With this piece of our ministerial team stable, we will now focus on the Facilities Manager position. Applications should be sent to fr.hreha@saintpolycarp.org. Please continue to pray for our discernment of this important ministry in our parish.

May God continue to bless you and reward your goodness!
