Because of this they struggle to serve the unique needs of their communities. Through your support, the Catholic Home Missions Appeal helps to ease the struggle of these dioceses and to form vibrant faith communities. Please help strengthen the Church at home by giving generously to this appeal.

PLEDGE GOAL FOR OUR FAMILY RELIGIOUS EDUCATION COORDINATOR

We are only at 1/3 of our pledge goal. Help us keep this position for the coming year!

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.

PARISH UPDATE

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!

LOOKING FOR ADULTS TO SERVE AS SACRISTANS

LOOKING FOR ADULTS TO SERVE AS SACRISTANS, EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS, LECTORS AND ALTAR SERVERS. PLEASE CONTACT THE PARISH OFFICE 503-738-6161 OR CHRIS ROSE 503-738-3221
