ST. PETERíS CATHOLIC CHURCH

GRENADA, MS

AUGUST 25, 2003 

 

St. Peterís Pastoral Council met on Monday, August 25, 2003, at 6:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall. Those present on the Council were Gerry Morris, Mitch Sones, Charlie Walker, Frankie Fortier, Father Brock, Anne Geiger, and Cecilia Livingston.  

This was an informal meeting to discuss the building fund project and any other matters that needed to come before the Council. All parishioners were invited to attend. Approximately 7 parishioners attended this meeting. 

The option of buying Emmanuel Baptist Church was discussed. It was decided that this would not be feasible for St. Peterís.  

Pledges for the building fund project were discussed. It was stated that out of approximately 110 families in the parish, only 62 families have pledged.  

Bob Smith brought before the meeting a fundraising idea in conjunction with the pledge program. His project for raising additional funds is through the purchase of engraved memory bricks. Parishioners could purchase a memory brick for a family member, a special occasion, in memory of a family member, etc. The bricks would be paved into a patio on the church property. Attached to these minutes is a synopsis of how this plan would work. This idea will be researched and discussed in more detail at a later date.  

Discussion was held regarding disposal of the Annex Building. Several ideas were discussed regarding the property. They are as follows: 

 

After a lengthy discussion on what steps to take regarding the building fund project, the following motions were made and adopted by the Parish Council. They are as follows: 

 

In accordance with the above motions, the actions to be taken at this point will be drawing the plans for the new Sunday School Building and having them approved by the Bishop. Once this is done, work can begin on renovation of the existing Parish Hall. 

The next parish council meeting will be held on September 8 at 6:30 pm. 

With no further business, the meeting was adjourned. 

 

Respectfully submitted,

Cecilia Livingston
