In just six short months we will be in the Christmas season, celebrating the birth of Christ. On a recent trip to Hobby Lobby I noticed that they already have Christmas on display. I guess they're taking Christmas in July seriously!
With Christmas on the horizon and six months left on the calendar, I'd to offer an update on parish finances and our UIM progress.
First, a huge thanks to all of you, for your continued financial support of our parish family. Through your generosity our ministries flourish and we are able to share the Good News more readily. Second, please refer to the bulletin insert on the final numbers for fiscal year 2015/16. A special thanks to the members of the finance council for your help!
Here are the most up to date UIM figures (as of June 2016): 88 families have pledged $51,980.00. We have received $32,136.66. Our parish goal is $80,396.06.
Again, thanks to those who have already pledged to this appeal. If you have not yet made a pledge, please consider making one in the name of Seminarian Franky, Francis or Tito. Franky and Francis will be present at each of the weekend masses to offer their thanks for your support and to ask for your continued prayers.
