Dear Sisters and Brothers in Jesus,
One of the questions I’m asked the most is “With all the extra work the Bishop gives you, how does it all get done?” The answer I’m sorry to say is “It gets done, but poorly.”
I really feel like I’ve let the operations of the parish suffer because of the time I take away during the week to meet the other demands I have on my time. With my recent appointment as Dean of the Northwest Deanery, that is only going to increase.
To help, I’m announcing the hiring of a Director of Parish Operations. Her duty will be to oversee the day-to-day operations of the parish in matters that are not pastoral or spiritual. You may wonder what that entails, but remember, our parish has over a $1 Million dollar budget just to keep the lights on and the doors open. She will oversee all that, as well as oversee the parish staff. She will be the main link between me and the staff (not including Deacons and Priests). She will also help me manage the budget of the parish so that your wonderful gifts are used wisely.
Please welcome Marleen McMahon to the parish staff. She is a native of the Phoenix area, and has worked in parishes for over 20 years. She knows parish operations intimately, and will be able to take my decisions and implement them with efficiency and care. She also has a great heart for parishioners and will be a warm and welcome addition to the parish. I’ve asked her to be at the next “Coffee Sunday” in October to meet people.
Please join me in welcoming Marleen to the parish staff. Her first day will be Wednesday, September 13.
May God continue to bless and prosper our lives.
