Seeing no children in other wards is a hindrance

Postby mprusse » Mon Sep 12, 2011 2:31 pm

As a bishop I've been frustrated by the new directory not showing children in other wards. I am often in a position where families are moving into our ward from another ward or I'm dealing with youth issues that involve other ward youth, etc., etc. There needs to be a way for ward leadership to see children of other wards.

I'll post this as a suggestion on the directory page too.

As I understand it, the new directory does allow viewing the youth based on your calling.

In this situation, would you be contacting the youth/family directly or would you be working though the other ward's Bishop?

If contact was needed it would be on a case by case basis. A simple question to the youth may go directly to him/her personally. If it was a weightier matter it might go to the bishop first. But most of the time I'm just needing a name of a youth in another ward.

I'm currently a bishop but cannot see those names in the new directory.

I'm assuming you know the family name. Just call the parents to discuss the issue.

I believe the new directory is set up so that you can only see the youth in your ward.
