As I am typing this blog, it is a dark rainy day in Regina. Definitely a good day to be reading a book, making soup or stew or cleaning out a cupboard. But the rain is necessary and will 'wash' all the streets and roads in the city.
As the Protocol for Responsible Parish Ministry Screening Committees are already aware, our department is planning to visit several parishes to do pre-audits before the insurance company decides to do their audit. The intent is to make sure that 'we are all on the same page'. We plan to visit all parishes in the City of REgina before the end of June. Throughout July and August we hope to visit several of the rural parishes. With approximately 150 parishes in the Archdiocese, we won't be able to visit everyone, but we will give our best try.
If you still have some paper work to return to your Screening Committee, please do so as soon as possible. It allows the committee to compete their work.
In March we were able to attend a Plan to Protect workshop sponsored by Winning Kids. It was an excellent workshop and confirmed for us that the Archdiocese is going in the right direction with our Protocols. The work completed by the Protocol Review Committee was excellent and will stand the 'test of time'.
Creating new ministries and translating part of the document into French has taken a significant amount of time.
We hope to have new updates ready to go in September.
