Archdiocesan Council Meeting

The Archdiocesan Executive Council held its first monthly meeting of the year on Wednesday, January 5th at the Archdiocese Complex in Teaneck, New Jersey. Agenda topics included preparation for the February 5th Face to Face meeting with Boards of Trustees Presidents, Board members and clergy in order to review Council accomplishments and outline future plans, including status reports from the four standing committees. Much attention was given to recent steps taken by the past presidents of SOAYO to re-vitalize the youth movement in the diocese. A segment of the February 5th program will be dedicated specifically for this topic and will include strategies being outlined for this initiative. The council also approved to replace the badly damaged roof of the Archdiocesan Complex on Midland Avenue in Paramus.

During the second half of the meeting the council broke down into four groups to discuss and fine-tune individual committee presentation strategies for the upcoming February 5th Face to Face meeting. The next regular council meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, February 2nd.
