Parish AGM in August

This will be after the Liturgy of the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos on Saturday 15th August. At this meeting we shall elect four members of our parish to serve on the church council for four years.
Our Trustees have done a marvellous job over the last fifteen years and their hard work, generosity and prayerful support have helped in the establishing of a vigorous and friendly family at St. Michael's.
Fr. Samuel, as chairman, the treasurer of the Trustees and two others will be ex officio members of the Council, leaving four others to be elected to serve on the Council. A notice will be posted in the refreshment room on Sunday 28th June and taken down on Sunday 26th July. If you would like to be considered for election, find a proposer and seconder and put up your name indicating your willingness to stand. If more than four names are put up, then there will be an election by ballot at the AGM on 15th August.
To be eligible for election you must be a member of St. Michael's church, twenty-one years of age, a "believer and a devout church-goer, known for his moral conduct and good behaviour" and able to perform effective service to the Parish. We should expect to meet quarterly. The Trustees are still legally responsible for St. Michael's, but, I am sure, will be grateful for extra help.

May God the Holy Spirit guide and protect us all.
