We want to keep you fully informed of our financial needs in managing the Parish and its ministries. Thank you for your generosity! We ended the first fiscal quarter with weekly offertory collections ahead of budget. However, in the Stewardship pledge campaign we have only received a very small percentage of pledges. We need our parish to respond to this important need.
WHY THE STEWARDSHIP PLEDGE IS SO IMPORTANT
Consider the following example. Your employer tells you that he is going to pay you, but he doesn’t tell you how much. So you work each week and at the end of the week he hands you a pay check. There was no way you could budget for your family needs. Well, that is how a parish operates when it doesn’t know what it might receive from week to week. By making an annual Stewardship pledge, it enables the parish to have a better idea of the expected revenues for the coming year. Without a pledge, we only guess!
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION COORDINATOR PLEDGE
We were blessed to have started our Religious Education ministry with an experienced and dedicated individual. This position has grown to now include the responsibilities of bulletin editor, Liturgy Committee chairman, Adult Education classes, RCIA, as well as assist in marriage preparation. We committed to this ministry initially for at least 5 years. The first fiscal quarter revenues for the Educational Coordinator, however, fell short of our budgeted goal. To ensure that we meet our commitment, please fill out the pledge card dedicated to the Family Religious Education Program which is available in the pews. We need everyone's commitment to fund this essential part of our parish’s Spiritual life.
This is an excellent time to plan for managing your taxable income and supporting the church. For those of you with an employer who matches your charitable donations, this would be great way to optimize your gift to the parish. Even those of you who consider yourself good at tax planning may be surprised at the impact a year-end contribution can have on reducing your tax liability.

You may call the OLV office where our parish staff will be available to assist you.
