A different Annual Parish Meeting
I rolled off in 2008 after untold years of being on (since sometime in the 90s), and Fr. McGrath's effort to have me come back on last year failed when the Parish decided to elect "new blood" instead. I fully supported that, by the way -- it's not my fiefdom and I don't want it. But membership means more when one has also held some responsibility, and if there's ever any difficulty there are others who have Been There Before to advise.
