GiftGiving

St. Mary’s is in Need of Your Financial Help

 Last week I talked to the parish about undergoing an experience of conversion. Like the people of Ninaveh who were called to change their ways or the disciples who were invited to put down their nets and follow Jesus, I asked if you would consider giving a little more of your financial resources to the support of your parish.

 Norma and Karl spoke about the many gifts that St. Mary’s brings to the community and how St. Mary’s has been the recipient of many gifts which have allowed us to make major improvements like painting the Church, installing new carpets and overhauling the heating system this past winter and improving the sound system which will take place this Spring. All of these important projects have been possible because of major gifts which have been given to the parish.

 Where we are lacking however is in our week to week contributions which we rely on for our annual budget. We never know when and if a gift will be given. All we can count on is what people are willing to commit to on a weekly basis. From this contribution we pay many expenses including;  paying our parish staff, our light and heating bills and covering our insurance to protect our facilities. You will notice in the weekly bulletin each week we record what we have budgeted for these contributions and what we have received.

 Over the past number of years while expenses have increased our overall contributions have diminished and if St. Mary’s is going to have a future it is necessary to turn that tide in the other direction.

 Will you consider a 10% increase in your weekly donation for the good of your parish? If you are able to do this it will ensure the financial stability of St. Mary’s in the days to come. Please help us if you can.

 Fr. Jon
