The by-laws of the St. Joseph Congregation parish corporation require that a trustee-secretary and a trustee-treasurer be elected by the parish membership in alternating years to two-year terms. The trustee-secretary is elected in even numbered years and the trustee-treasurer in odd numbered years. This being an odd numbered year, 2017, we will be electing our trustee/treasurer to serve for the next two years.
Trustees must be parish members, practicing Catholics and at least 25 years old. They are ex-officio members of the Pastoral Council and participate fully in the work of the council. They are also two of the five officers of the parish corporation. (The archbishop is president, the pastor is vice-president and an auxiliary bishop is the other member.)
If you would like to run, or you would like to nominate someone else to run for trustee, you must submit nomination papers to the parish office by 12 p.m. on May 19, 2017. A nomination requires the signature of 10 parish members. Nomination papers are available online from the parish website, stjoetosa.com, at the church doors, or from the parish office.
The election for Parish Trustee will take place at all Masses the weekend of June 3/4, 2017.
