She mentioned that we are now supposed to give both the top and bottom of white copy of the Salvation Army vouchers to the vendor. Sherry said she is planning to approach Rays Market to see if they will accept Salvation Army vouchers for food and if so, she hopes we can work with Common Good to identify people in our community that may need more groceries than they can supply during an emergency situation.

Millie said she and Mary will be dressing as elves when they ring the bell for the Salvation Army at Rays tomorrow.
Father announced that the new church calendars are here and thanked Amling Schroeder Funeral Service for providing them free to the parish.

Rosie suggested that the person in charge of bringing Sunday treats also be in charge of the kitchen that day so we can give Stephanie and Nan a break from some of the weekly work.
Father discussed a family in the parish that was in need and various suggestions were made by the group of ways to help.

Next PAC meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 23rd at 6pm. There will be a 4:30pm Adoration, 5:30pm Mass and 6pm dinner and PAC meeting.

Reports:
1. Religious Education & Youth Outreach: Father mentioned that Rick would organize RCIA classes for anyone wishing to join the church. He also said we should look into having Catechesis classes for the children and possibly get Children’s Magnificat booklets for them as well.
2. Budget & Finance: Carol Hart presented a check from the balance in the Women’s Guild Carpet Fund, in the amount of $333, to the church. Ken said with the addition of this check we would be in the black for the month of October by $246. For the period of July through October we are in the red for only $354. Ken said that financially we are sitting “pretty cool”.
3. Altar Society/Women’s Guild: Carol said they have had many expenses lately related to hosting funeral services and special occasions held at the church. Stephanie said we are lucky we are doing as well as we are. Rolando said the church vestments need to be cleaned, which would cost about $400-$500, and that perhaps the Friends of St. John’s would consider making a contribution to cover it. It was moved to apply to them for the funds to cover cleaning the vestments (MSP: Rick/Sherry). Rolando said he would submit the application.
4. Publicity: Viv mentioned there was an article in the paper about Rick’s Ordination to Deacon, even though she hadn’t submitted it. She asked Sherry to take photographs of the Ordination and the first Mass he delivers. Sherry said the new Phone Directories are almost ready for printing, and as soon as she has photos of the Ordination, she will start printing them.
5. Liturgy: Rolando gave a report on the coming events on the Liturgical calendar. We only have 2 copies of the new lector’s workbook and the readers can take them home to study from before they read. Father said he might order more if he could find them for less cost. Rolando mentioned having a workshop after the first of the year for people taking part in the liturgy. Fr. Stan has invited Rick to speak to the members at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church on Nov. 12th at 6pm about the vocation to the deaconate. There will be a potluck dinner following. Father Andrew will be going and we are all invited to attend. They would like to know how many are planning to be there.
6. Maintenance: Ken said that all the painting and carpeting has been completed. He said there is some electrical work on the outside lights that needs to be done.
7. Community Outreach: Sherry said that the gas vouchers for the Chevron Station are not available at this time, since the station has been sold, but she will keep in touch with the new owner, hoping that eventually he will be in a financial position to accept them. She announced that we now can issue Salvation Army vouchers for fare on Curry Public Transit buses. She also mentioned that we could use another person to take a turn answering the church cell phone. Dusty suggested that she make the request for a volunteer to everyone in the congregation after Mass on a Sunday.

Meeting Minutes of Sept. 8, 2009
The meeting was held at 6:00 pm at the church and was called to order at 6:18pm by Chair, Phil Colozzi, following a scrumptious potluck dinner.

Present were: Phil Colozzi, Chair; Glen Thurow, Vice Chair; Sherry Johnson, Secretary; Father Andrew Thomas, Pastor; Ken & Stephanie Brewer, Dusty & Helene Harrington-Collins ,Carol Hart, Rolando Rodriguez, Marvin & Sharon Zuber, Mary Colozzi, Colleen Gryzwana, Carol & Lew Dunn, Viv & Rick Williams & new church member, Millie Hass, who had decorated the dining tables for the occasion.

Minutes: The minutes of the June 2nd, 2009 meeting were accepted as presented (MSP: Carol/Rolando).

Reports:
1. Religious Education: There was no report.
2. Budget & Finance: Ken said we are $410 in the black for July & August (see report). We had greater revenue this year than last year, but have had maintenance and improvement expenses. These were mostly in the rear of the building, such as the new parking areas.
3. Altar Society/Women’s Guild: Stephanie reported that the Altar Society and the Women’s Guild are now merged. There is approximately $120 in the Altar Society’s available funds. Colleen said we need another Eucharistic cloth for the Altar. Father Andrew asked Rick to order 2 of them.
4. Publicity: Sherry said it had been a year since our last Church Phone Directory was distributed and that we are currently out of them. She said she would start gathering new information this Sunday at Mass in order to update the listings. Father said it might be a good idea to go ahead and print a new edition of the book to be distributed this fall, assuming there are enough changes.
5. Liturgy: Rolando gave a report on the coming events on the Liturgical calendar.
6. Maintenance: Marvin said we were OK on maintenance outside. Ken said we will be painting the gathering area before the carpet is installed (see Pastor’s Report below).
7. Community Outreach: A discussion was held about some of the problems that have been encountered over the past few months with people wanting assistance from the church. It was agreed that we must use caution when assisting needy people by meeting them in public places to give out vouchers and by not giving out cash. Father Andrew said he doesn’t want the church giving out lodging vouchers because of the possible legal and moral liabilities that might result from destruction of property at the lodges. Rolando pointed out that Al is selling the Chevron Station at the end of this month and it is doubtful if the new owners would continue to accept gas vouchers from the Salvation Army. Father suggested we could help provide transportation by buying more bus passes for Gary Culley to distribute at KarKare Auto Parts, if he needs help financially in purchasing them…Phil said he would check with Gary. It was agreed to revise the sign in the front window of the church to say that a representative of the church could be reached by calling our cell phone number only during regular daytime business hours. Sherry agreed to revise the sign.
Pastor’s Report:
Financially we are doing well in both churches.
Carpet & Painting: Father would like to get a crew together at 9am on Friday & Saturday, Sept. 18th & 19th. Saturday we will paint the walls. Father showed samples of the carpeting and told about the paint colors selected. With the second collection that was held, we now have all the funds needed for these projects, with maybe a little left over.
Stephanie Brewer was honored by Father for all the work she does for the church. He presented her a small token of appreciation from the church and himself, a gift certificate to Benetti’s Restaurant.
Archdiocese policy was discussed as it related to meetings of church councils, such as the PAC. Father said the Pastor must be present at all such meetings. From now on, the Budget Report will be presented as a balance sheet, without a detailed profit and loss statement, as before.
Communion Service: The Mass on the last week of this month will be on Tuesday, Sept. 29th, not on Wednesday.
Rick Williams’ Ordination as Deacon will be held in Portland on Saturday, October 31st.

New Sink: The men’s bathroom needs a new sink.
Cursillo: Phil will talk to Father Carl at the North Bend church about offering a Cursillo. Anyone who is interested in attending should let Phil know.

Pastor’s Report:
Father said a fellow would like to talk to our church about sponsoring a child from the Honduras mission that Holy Trinity supports. He will be here to speak to us at Mass on Sunday.
The potluck celebrations held occasionally after Sunday Mass were discussed. Father said on those days he will hold Mass at St. John’s at 8am and at 11am at Holy Trinity so he will have time to attend our potlucks

Money raised by the Women’s Guild rummage sale, this fall, will be added to the fund. Father estimates the cost of the new carpet should be between $4500 and $5000.
