The 2022 Annual Meeting took place on Sunday, January 23, 2022 at 9:00 A.M, during our Sunday morning service of Holy Eucharist. Please read the Epistle of January 2022 for details of the meeting, and to answer the question of WHY?
See the link below to access the Meeting Agenda and all of the materials that were covered on the 23rd. This meeting was extremely important for all of us who treasure the perfect gifts of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.
Finally, here is a summary of the meeting from Father Don Davidson from his weekly newsletter, ‘Tower Talk’.
The 183rd Annual Meeting of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church was held within the Sunday service of Holy Eucharist on January 23, 2002. Joel Arnold, Tina Morrison and Celeste Lord were elected to threeyear terms on the Vestry.
The vestry brought forth a resolution that allows the Senior and Junior Warden to stay as members of the Vestry for one year beyond the normal end of their terms of office if the Vestry elects them to office. The resolution was adopted, and later the Vestry elected Barbara Mannor to continue as the Senior Warden and Becky Bennett to continue as Junior Warden. This unusual resolution was brought forth because the parish is in the midst of a Rector transition.
During the Annual Address of the Priest-in-Charge, Fr. Don announced the appointment of Walt Peake as the Church Archivest. Walt will be taking the lead on the Intersection150 group as we begin our celebration of the 150th anniversary of our building. Walt will also be working with the University of Michigan Flint on providing a repository of our archives.
Senior Warden Mannor discussed our growing partnership with Partners for Sacred Places in growing connections and opportunities to assess our
space with our community. Treasurer Maggie Hart and Director of Finance George Gibson presented good news with our financial status from 2021, and the parish budget for 2022.
Following the Annual Meeting the Vestry, in addition to the Wardens elected Jan Bugbee as the Clerk of the Vestry and Maggie Hart as the Treasurer. The vestry has elected to meet at 7:00 P.M. on the fourth Tuesday of each month either in-person or via ZOOM.
