Here is a very interesting job posting:
Langley Park Parish Partnership Coordinator
The Langley Park Parish Partnership is comprised of the Catholic Community of Langley Park, St. Camillus, St. Elizabeth, and Our Lady of Mercy Catholic churches. We work together as a multicultural, interparish community rooted in shared faith and mutual, just relationships. Each community in this partnership aims to support one another by sharing their gifts of Faith, Spirituality and Worship as well as helping each other with earthly needs as brothers and sisters in Christ.
The Partnership Coordinator works to support the four pastors, the volunteer Partnership Steering Committee, and each parish’s Partnership Team in their efforts to strive towards the mission statement as written above. As a team, the Coordinator and these parties develop and implement goals for the Parish Partnership. The Coordinator is responsible for maintaining communication with all four church communities, assisting in planning liturgical, service, and community-building events, and matching volunteers with service opportunities. He or she helps develop relationships across the parish communities. He or she also helps identify additional needs in each community and how they can be addressed through the partnership.
Interesting that I did not see it advertized in The Catholic Standard but maybe it was in the Spanish newspaper.
Is this just simply a matter of better off parishes looking to help one another? Or is this something deeper?
Remember, this Friday at the Fr. Rosensteel Council (7:30pm) Knights of Columbus, Randall Terry will be speaking. They are located at 9707 Rosensteel Avenue Silver Spring, Maryland 20910 (just off of Forest Glen Road -- near the Forest Glen Metro).
