Communique #7 — Laws

February 01, 2023

National Past President and Chairperson of Laws Anne-Marie Gorman, February 1, 2023


Greetings and wishes for a wonderful 2023!

By now, each council has received the proposed amendment adopted at the fall 2022 executive meeting of the national executive/board. The parish councils will be hosting their annual meetings, at which time they will vote. The procedure should be familiar to parish councils as they have just completed a vote in 2022. Instructions were included on the triplicate forms sent, which should make the process manageable.

As provincial past presidents, part of your responsibility will be to ensure the diocesan past presidents have received the votes from their respective parish councils and are ready to bring an instructed vote to the upcoming diocesan annual meeting of members in spring 2023. In the case of those provincial councils with no diocesan councils, the parish councils will send one copy of their vote to you directly.

I am projecting a smooth voting procedure at the provincial annual meetings of members, but if there are questions, please feel free to contact me directly by email or telephone.

God bless all of you,

Anne-M Gorman

National Past President and Chairperson of Laws
