History: Since the 1990’s, within the Diocese of Cleveland under the guidance of Bishop Anthony M. Pilla, parishes have successfully organized their various ministries and groups under a “Commission and Committee” structure.  The idea is that each individual group would become a parish committee: utilizing officers, setting regular meetings, and working toward a specific purpose within the parish. Multiple committees would then belong to a larger Commission that would unite them under a more general facet of parish life, such as Worship, Outreach, Administration, etc.  As a fruit of our 40th Anniversary and after proper consultation with our Pastoral Council, I would like to adopt this structure of organization to our 46 parish groups/ministries/committees.  I believe that this will help each parishioner and “committee” to understand how they function and collaborate within the larger scope of the parish of Nativity of the Lord Jesus.  May this re-structuring facilitate a deeper sense of involvement, cooperation and belonging to this local living organism within the Universal Catholic Church for a great many years to come!

God bless – Fr. Kawalec
