OLD BUSINESS
A. Filling Open Pastoral Council Openings/Pastoral Council structure

New Business
A. Parish Mission Our parish mission for 2017 will be around October 8-10 tentatively. The tag line for the mission is “the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker and everybody else.” Basically, it is carrying spirituality to the workplace.
Nativity Parish has an endowment called the Fr. Mueller Endowment that was established for Liturgy and Social Justice purposes. These funds can be used for Parish Mission educational programs.
B. Parish Council
Father Kevin mentioned that the parish mission gives the parish council the opportunity to go in a new direction. We could use the parish council to research possible parish mission topics and speakers. They would also be responsible for spending the endowment funds every year on the parish mission. The available funds have been about $5,000 a year
