UPDATING PARISH RECORDS
We are currently working on updating our parish listings and we note there are many families who do not have a telephone number listed. We know many of you have discontinued your land lines and are using cell phones. Please take a few moments to call the parish office with your current phone number. Thank you!
2021 CHARITABLE GIVING REMINDER
Any contributions that you would like applied in the year 2021 must be postmarked or dropped off at the parish office no later than December 31, 2021. All contributions received after that date will be applied to the year 2022.
CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL
If you have not yet responded to the 2021/22 CSA, please set aside a moment to prayerfully consider a gift amount that your means will permit. Be assured that the Lord knows what is in your heart and how you share your gifts. While it is understood that we cannot all give equally, we are still called by the Gospel to give of ourselves in a way that reflects our blessings. Your gift, whether large or small, matters greatly to the diocese, our parish and to the Lord! Scripture tells us, “There is more happiness in giving than receiving!”
CONTRIBUTION ENVELOPES FOR 2022
Contribution envelopes are currently being processed and will be mailed before the end of the year. Many will note that their envelope number has changed, so please do not use your new envelopes until January, 2022. If you do not receive a packet, please call the parish office and Mary Margaret will send you one. Thank you for your continuing generosity!
