Weekly Bulletins Merged with GA

January 11, 2019

From the Pastor

Dear St. Nicholas and Guardian Angels Parishioners, Today we begin our combined bulletin for both parishes. This is a work in progress so I ask everyone from both parishes to be patient as we get into the groove of doing this. You will still be able to find information for each parish in the one bulletin. As I’m sure you all have heard, Jodee Korkowski, our long time administrator at St. Nicholas, left her position December 31. I thank Jodee for her many years of dedicated and amazing service to St. Nicholas. She has been a great blessing to the parish in her time as administrator. Goin forward, in the interim, Jean Rief and Lynn Arnal from Guardian Angels will be providing administrative, receptionist, and other duties for both parishes. Roxie Diaz, the GA school receptionist, who speaks both English and Spanish, will provide some receptionist duties at St. Nicholas. Office hours at both parishes have changed. Please see the section in this bulletin with the new office hours for both parishes. There will also be some other changes such as better integrating the phone systems between the two parishes so that calls from one parish can be easily transferred and forwarded to the other parish. Both parishes will have their same phone numbers. Another change is that the Archdiocesan Parish Accounting Services (PASC) will now provide the bookkeeping and accounting services for St. Nicholas (they already do this for Guardian Angels). I am sure that there will be other changes as well, but for now we will take things one step at a time. I want to stress that while both parishes will be more closely collaborating with such things as staffing, programming, ministries, and administration, we are not in the process of merging the parishes. Each parish will remain separate from one another with their own unique identity. Each parish will have their own trustees, legal structure, councils, finances, etc. I ask for your patience, and prayers, and good will as we go through this time of transition. I believe that there are both challenges and opportunities with these changes. With the Holy Spirit leading us, and each of us doing our part, I am confident that God will continue to make great things happen at both Guardian Angels and St. Nicholas.
