In accordance with article 6, section 3A of the Constitution of St. Mary’s Antiochian Orthodox Church in Mississauga, the chairperson of the Parish Council Edward Joubran appointed Ayed Ballan, Nicolas Nakhl and Sam Aboumrad with the help of our priest Fr. Elias Ayoub, to prepare for the Parish Council elections. This committee is responsible for managing the process of nominations and elections for the purpose of electing four (4) new members for the Parish council to replace four members (Ehab Ballan, Adnan Hakim, Tony Haddad and Elie Haddad) whose period of service expired in 2019.
In accordance with Article 6 section 2 of the Constitution, a qualified candidate for the parish council must be 21 years of age or over, have been a voting member of the parish for a period of two years, have fulfilled the canonical requirements of Faith, and have paid his/her dues and pledges in full for the last 2 years
The election committee invites members of the parish who find themselves to be competent as well as willing to serve in the parish council to get in contact with one of the Election Committee members no later than a week before the date of election June 2nd, 2019
In case there was no quorum (25% of the eligible voting members) on June 2nd, 2019 then the election will take place 4 weeks later, on June 30th, 2019 with whoever is in attendance.
We pray that our Lord Jesus Christ will lead us toward the right path for his glory and in accordance to his will.
To be successful we must work together as one family. Your attendance and opinions are encouraged and important in continuing to build our Church and God’s Glory.
Note: Only Elie Haddad from the outgoing members is eligible for nominations and re-election.
