Invitation to Discern Membership on ACTS Core Team
The Holy Spirit is truly alive and working through the ACTS ministry at St. Clare. Just ask any retreatant who recently made their first ACTS retreat! In order to maintain this important ministry, however, we need new people to join the ACTS Core Team every year. Well, it's that time again!
In January, five members of the Core Team will be leaving and need to be replaced with new members from our St. Clare ACTS Ministry. Samantha Weaver, Lisa Prekosovich, Toni Masone, Jimmy Hall, and Gregory Peck will complete their three-year terms of Core Team service, and we will need 3-4 female and 2-3 male replacement members.
If you have teamed on at least one ACTS retreat, then you are invited to apply to be discerned as a new Core Team member.
Attached to this email is an explanation of the discernment process, as well as a discernment questionnaire which you can download and print out. Alternatively, you can also fill out the discernment questionnaire online here:
The deadline for submitting your discernment questionnaire (online, or physically to the parish office, or by email to
) is Sunday, December 9th, by noon.
In order to serve on the Core Team, you should meet the following qualifications:
be a member of St. Clare of Assisi Catholic Church
have served on at least
be in full communion with the Catholic Church
have demonstrated leadership ability
have a positive, supportive attitude
attending a meeting each month
committing to a three-year term, starting in January 2019
serving the ACTS ministry and faithfully performing the duties assumed
Please note the following:
Members of the Core Team cannot serve as a Retreat Director during their term
Previous members of the Core Team may join again after three years have passed since they left the Core Team
More than one family member may be on the Core Team at the same time (so married couples can serve together, for example, if they are interested)
If you know someone who would be a good candidate for the Core Team, please encourage them to apply.
Thank you for your prayers, support, and continued participation in this ministry.
