From The Pastor


03-17-2019Fr. Michael Straley


During Lent Catholics are called to renew our spiritual practices like fasting, praying, and almsgiving, and to think about our lives and ourselves in new ways. Almsgiving encourages us to express gratitude for all that God has given us by giving some away, and you can embrace a new practice that will provide our church with consistent support and simplify your giving.

Did you know that our parish pays $1288 six times a year for envelopes for our parishioners? And when someone moves they usually do not notify us so we must not only pay postage to send the envelopes, but pay again when the packages are returned! So, some may say, "well, let's not use envelopes." But keeping track of contributions is important and a requirement for us. A better response would be for more parishioners who give regularly to use eGiving which would make this process so much easier and less costly for everyone.
