Upcoming Aaronic priesthood ordinations?

#1

Post by mprusse »

As the ward membership clerk I've been asked to put together a list of potential January Aaronic priesthood ordinations. Is there a way to generate that report now? Thank you.

Since you do not have access to custom reports in LCR you will need to have your ward clerk create the report.

In another month that should show up on the Bishopric Action and Interview List, if you can wait that long.

That may be true in December but now the Action and Interview List shows overdue Aaronic Priesthood ordinations rather than up and coming ordinations.

They will show in November in the interview section.

You could also look at the oldest primary class to get your list. If you have a split class you may have more than one class.

Are we sure this is true? From what I can tell, the Interview section of the "Action and Interview List" does not include the ordination interviews mentioned in GHB 18.10.2. I only see the annual and semi-annual interviews corresponding to birthdates.

Which leads me to this question: Is there any guidance about whether the semi-annual interview can be considered as fulfilling the ordination interview specified in GHB 18.10.2? The wording does (to me) seem to imply that an interview should be held fairly close to the ordination, but perhaps a regular November interview can suffice for a January ordination, if the ordination is discussed?

Am not sure what the situation is at this time. The thread is over a year old. As far as when to interview in advance, that is the bishop's call with guidance from the stake president.
