From the Pastor
With one month to go, our Annual Collection total is now at $6,756 from 61 donations. Unfortunately, that is a thousand dollars down from where we were last year at this time. Please help our parish reach last year’s total of over $13,000. Please use the special envelopes mailed to you or one of the ones located in the pews. We kindly ask all households to contribute $100.00 or more according to your means. You can make your donation anytime between now and December 31 (for tax deduction). This special annual collection, that replaces other fund sources of the past (e.g. festival and raffles), is very important to our parish.
THANK YOU! – Msgr. Simeone
