Advent Parish Checklist

These suggestions result from years of experience with vestry and church administration in my home parish, St. Paul's on-the-Hill in St. Paul, Minnesota, and in an Lutheran mega-church where I worked as database manager. With a little planning, Christmas and the new year don't have to be a blur of tasks and missed opportunities, and your clergy and vestry successors will thank you for providing a "how-to" blueprint for the end of the year processes.
