Our long campaign process of gathering information, becoming informed, prayer, and discerning what sacrificial giving means will officially culminate on Commitment Weekend – next weekend. Next weekend starts the commitment phase of our campaign. We will commemorate the start of this important phase of our campaign with sharing a nice Knights of Columbus breakfast. Please plan on joining your fellow parishioners next weekend.

Soon after next weekend, you will receive a pledge card to register your participation in this important campaign. We are all parts of the body and each of us is needed to bring about a campaign victory. So continue to be in prayer about what your individual piece of the puzzle will be and what sacrifice means for you. Everyone is needed.

November 25/16

This Thanksgiving time of year has special meaning, for we know that gratitude lies at the very heart of stewardship. We are in the prayer phase of our “Rooted in Christ, Growing to Serve” campaign. We should be focusing in thanksgiving on our lives and the blessings of the Lord. Everyone is asked to set aside some time for prayer each day to seek direction from our Lord on the blessings you’ve received and what you will return to God via this campaign. Let us pray not for what we want, but for what god gives us to do with our blessings.

November 18/19

For those who attended our Advance Commitment reception last Sunday – THANK YOU! The reception was a great time to not only for socializing with fellow parishioners, but to focus attention on our important Rooted in Christ, Growing to Serve capital campaign. Soon, everyone will receive a brochure in the mail. Please read it carefully and begin to pray about your pledge to this important campaign. Pray that God’s will be done, not yours. As faithful stewards, we must communicate with God through prayer to know His will. Pray and allow our Lord to lead you in action.
