NEW PARISH COUNCIL
Sunday, 18th. March
Fr. Paul Marx blesses the Parish Council
during the Sunday Eucharist, 8th. April 2018.
Sunday the 18th of March elections to
parish councils were held throughout the Diocese. For us here in Mariukirkjan we
were to elect 4 members. We had a real election with 13 candidates to choose
from – a number which I consider fantastic! And I’m proud that so many were
willing to run. This expresses an active involvement in the parish.
The new parish
council members are:
Sr.Marisa Cremona Spiteri
Jón Hansen (vice-chairman)
Katrina (Kinn) Magnussen
plus two alternates:
Sharon Christiansen and Agnieszka
Of the 224 eligible voters 56 voted, which is 25%.
Even though the number of those, who voted was not large, still I consider it to
be a goodly number, something for which we can be proud.
I extend my thanks to all the 13
candidates and also to the election committee consisting of Sr. Marisa, Kinn
Magnussen and Christian Gabrielsen, who have done a very efficient and good
piece of work.
