As the liturgical year comes to an end, let me thank all of you for your support expressed in prayer, communal worship, charitable service, kind words and gestures of faith, friendship and affection. Thank you for your spiritual and material support of our parish and her ministries.
These are extremely challenging times for all of us and it is important that we affirm and encourage each other to have faith, hope and love that open us to God’s vision and power to accomplish what is expected from us by The Lord.
As people trusting in God’s providential care we have opened our church, school and various ministries in limited or full capacities, observing health regulations and doing everything we can to keep us all safe. Thank you to all for your courage and dedication in nourishing our community life through these “social distancing “ challenges.
We thank God for protecting us from harm as we keep our school open five days a week and our church for daily and Sunday masses and religious formation of children and adults.
We are also financially sound thanks to your generous support. Our regular collections amounted to $48,679.22 year to date which is $4,000.00 less what we had budgeted but the online giving was $3,000.00 higher than budgeted and amounted to $ 37,967.22 The income against the expenses leaves us $41.67 ahead at this time of the year. This is something we can work on improving but nevertheless still optimistic in these challenging times.
The greatest challenge we face in the next few months will be meeting our DDD goal of $50,000.00. At $48,709.00 in pledges we are almost there but we are $13,469.54 short in fulfilling our pledge. If any one can help with the shortfall in the nearest future, I would greatly appreciate that.
Concluding the Church Liturgical Year with the approaching Solemnity of Christ the King I thank the Lord along with you for helping us through these months and ask the Almighty to nourish our faith and strengthen our hope for better times and continually mold our hearts to love God and each other as Jesus did.
As Advent nears I would encourage you to wait for Christmas and prepare for it through worship, prayer, decking the houses gradually to climax our joyful trust and love for the Savior on the Day of Christ's Birth. Thank you, Fr. Andrzej
