“RAISE US UP” CAMPAIGN UPDATE – GREAT NEWS! With God’s help the entire project will be completed by late October. We reached our fund raising goal in pledges!! Our goal was $450,000. A reminder to please continue your payments on pledges. Payment envelopes are available in the blue baskets in the gathering space of the church.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY AND COOPERATION

CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL Thank you for filling out a Catholic Services Appeal Envelope. For those who did not fill one out, please do so before you leave church today. No gift is too small, and our parish is trying to reach 100% participation. By making your gift today you can save a volunteer from having to call you saving time and expense. We have raised $12,420.00 toward our CSA goal. There are many challenges facing us today. The responsibility our parish has to help provide diocesan and services and ministries such as support for vocations and education of seminarians in an answer to that challenge.

PARISH ENGAGEMENT SURVEY – YOUR OPINION COUNTS The Parish Council values your opinion regarding vital parish programs and the future direction of the church. The council is sponsoring a “Parish Engagement Survey” which invites you to share your thoughts about involvement in the parish. A copy of the survey will be mailed to the homes of each registered parishioner. The survey will also be available at the weekend Masses October 13-14, 2018. Please complete the survey and return it to the parish office through the provided stamped envelope or drop it in the weekend collection basket. Please return the survey by October 19th. We appreciate your time and effort in sharing your thoughts and opinions about the important programs of S.t Francis Xavier Parish.
