First, a huge thank you to all of our very generous parishioners. Your weekly offertory contributions whether through ParishPay, through checks and envelopes, or by dropping cash in the basket, provide the lifeblood of income for our parish.
We support over 40 separate ministries and programs outside of our regularly scheduled Masses, Rites of Initiation and Reconciliation, and all of the Sacraments.
It all costs money and your weekly or monthly contributions are what allows us to provide all of this – for you.
We have two requests.
First, please consider using Parish Pay. It is incredibly helpful for our Parish.
Secondly, would you consider, once a year in September when we hold Stewardship Weekend, increasing your monthly contribution by 10% to 20%? Many of us, simply out of habit, have not increased our contribution to the parish in a number of years. Yet, the cost of gas and electricity, and fertilizer for the lawns, and altar wine for our liturgies – all cost have gone up.
Whatever you decide to do, know that we are most grateful for your faith in us and for sharing your time, your resources, and your spiritual life with us.
We – you – are the church, and we thank you.
