Growing in Love of God and Neighbor

Special Parish Meeting 12/26

There will be a Special Parish Meeting December 26th at 11 a.m. to consider changes to our church bylaws, primarily to provide for the possibility of virtual or hybrid meetings of the congregation and Vestry. The meeting will be held in the church; all present will be required to wear masks. The timing of this meeting is so that the new bylaws, if passed, can take effect in time for our Annual Meeting on January 30, 2022.

Please review the proposed bylaws (here, or a redline document showing initial changes from our current bylaws here, including updates from a first round of congregational feedback).

In addition to the addition of a new Article VI (“Electronic Meetings”), some other changes in wording have been made following the suggestions of the Chancellor of the Diocese of New Jersey, to help clarify our intent or make our bylaws more consistent with the canons of the Diocese or the laws of the State, where applicable.

We particularly welcome feedback before the meeting if you are unable to attend in person on 12/26. Contact Mother EmilyLori Rapuano, or the Wardens (Liz Louie and Nancy Matthews) with your comments and questions.
