to the reader: Throughout this document the word "responsible"
is used when defining a warden’s functions and
duties. This does not mean that the warden must carry
out a specific function or duty; rather, the warden
must ensure that the function or duty is carried out.
is our intent that this document will be reviewed and
updated at a minimum of every ten (10) years.]
good resource for leadership in meetings is “Robert’s
Rules of Order” available in libraries and bookstores.
Diocesan workshops are offered on a variety of topics
of interest to Wardens. Watch for advertisements in
the Parish mail or contact the Diocesan office for information.
