Stewardship of Treasury
“We are Disciples imbued by the Holy Spirit”
Our Annual Offertory Drive started last weekend. If you did not pick up your packet at the back of Mass it was mailed out this week. Today the first annual “Stewardship of Treasure” will handed out at Mass this weekend. The “Stewardship of Treasure” will include information on giving, an assessment of where we are in our mission and where we hope to be, along with an annual accounting of our income and expenses from the prior fiscal year, along with a summary of our budget for the upcoming year. Take time to look through the pages of this booklet as they consider before the Lord how he has called them to financially support the mission of our parish in the coming year.
During the weekend, November 10th and 11th, will be “Commitment Sunday”. Bring your pledge and drop it in the basket at the base of the Sanctuary. No matter how large or small your pledge, all are invited to bring their gift to the Lord. If you are unable to bring your pledge to Mass, please feel free to mail it back in the envelope provided in your packet or drop it by the Office.
If you have any questions, please call Maggie Wright, OFS, Director of Accounting and Development at 740.345.8708, extension 204.
Once Fall begins, things start to rush towards the New Year. One day pumpkin spiced everything seems to go on sale, and the next day it's Christmas Eve--where is the time to prepare? As Advent approaches, we want to take time to purposefully make ourselves ready for the coming of Jesus at Christmas. This month, Katherine and Grace will help us get ready by looking at the life of Mary the Mother of God; to see how she prepared the way for the coming of Jesus. Join us Friday, November 9th for Pints with Padre at the Rectory. RSVP to 740.535.6359
This Saturday, November 3rd, after the 5 pm Mass in Johnson Hall
