All ministry team leaders are expected to participate in all scheduled synaxis meetings. If they themselves are not able attend, they should appoint a person from their respective team to represent them.
Participation in the parish Synaxis meetings is critical in order for ministry to be effective at the parish level. They offer a regular forum for cross-functional communication, collaboration, support, education and accountability between the Priests, Parish Council members, Ministry Team leaders and members of the various Ministry Teams. The Synaxis meetings are also open to all stewards of the Annunciaion who are in good standing. Anyone interested in forming a new Ministry Team should first attend at least one parish Synaxis meeting.
