June 2015 Meeting Minutes


Parish Council Meeting - Church of the Holy Trinity


June 16, 2015


In attendance were  Father Jonathan, Mark Cush, Dave Weiland, Paula Cush, Mark Capuano, Rick Cercone, Christ , Cathy Morris, and Jo Ann Yost.  Deacon Lyn, Father Jeff,  and Amy Rowland were absent.  Mark Cush opened in prayer, and the May meeting minutes were approved.


Committee Reports :


There were no specific committee reports this month, other than comments from the various Missions as to progress with their budget requests.


Old Business:


Father Jonathan informed us that Lindsay Williams was unable to accept the custodian job, so J & J (the company which does the rectory cleaning) will take over these duties until a new custodian can be found.  Also, we are still looking for an outside maintenance person.  In the meanwhile, volunteers have been able to keep up with the flower beds, mulching, etc.  We are deeply grateful for their dedication. 


Supplies for this year's Vacation Bible School have been coming in, and it appears all necessary items will be covered. 


More information regarding a liability insurance rider for non-parishioner use of Church facilities is being gathered at this time.


The Volunteer Appreciation Dinner this Friday currently has about 40 people signed up.  Mark Capuano volunteered to give a short pre-dinner welcome on behalf of the Parish Council. 


New Business:


Again it was noted that recent work on Mary's garden has resulted in a beautiful space for quiet contemplation, prayer, and reflection.  Special thanks was extended to Paula Cush and others who made this happen!  Some outside work remains & Dave Weiland and Paula are welcoming volunteers.


Dave Schaub has had to resign as Building Maintenance Director, so we are searching for a qualified replacement.  Dave will be greatly missed! 


We were reminded that the bloodmobile will be at the Church tomorrow.


Our next meeting will be Tuesday, July 21st at 7:00PM. 


Respectfully submitted,


Mark Capuano
