Q: If our mission is to be holy and lead others to Christ-like holiness does it make sense to have a Jewish person as a lead role?

A: An Associate Member is someone who helps us with our works of service. He/she may or may not be Catholic. According to the Rule, they can indeed be members on committees; but cannot vote as stated in the standard bylaws. They can also be the chair/head of committees, but not officers at any level.

Q: A Conference in our diocese has been given by the Bishop to the Latin Priests. He does not want a Conference attached to the parish but is okay with a free-standing Conference that serves the poor in his area. Is there anything Conference members need to do to inform National that we are no longer a parish-based Conference?

A: There are no National Council records that have to be changed – only the way the Conference operates and solicit funds and members. The Diocesan Council and District Council must be aware of this arrangement.

P: Si nuestra misión es ser santo y guiar a otros a la santidad de Cristo, ¿tiene sentido tener a una persona judía en un papel importante?

R: Un Miembro Asociado es alguien que nos ayuda con nuestras obras de servicio. Él/ella puede o no ser católico. Según la Regla, sí pueden ser miembros de comités; pero no pueden votar como se indica en los estatutos estándar. También pueden ser presidentes/jefes de comités, pero no funcionarios de ningún nivel.

P: El obispo ha otorgado una parroquia en nuestra diócesis con una Conferencia a los sacerdotes latinos. Él no quiere una Conferencia adjunta a la parroquia, pero está de acuerdo con que sea una Conferencia independiente que sirva a los pobres en el área. ¿Hay algo que los miembros de la Conferencia deban hacer para informar al Consejo Nacional que ya no somos una Conferencia parroquial?

R: No hay registros del Consejo Nacional que deban cambiarse, solo la forma en que la Conferencia opera y solicita fondos y miembros. El Consejo Diocesano y el Consejo de Distrito deben ser informados de este arreglo.
