As of December 1, additional contributions of $8,120.00 have been made in the form of cash and checks that are not reflected in the progress bar.
We had some great plans for 2020—it was our year to celebrate 60 years as a parish. And though a lot changed in March, one thing remained the same: we hold onto our faith in Jesus Christ who centers us and compels us to help others. We’re persevering because we have hope in our mission which not only engages us in our worship life, but provides compassion, education and charity to those who come to us. We’re a light for many in the midst of darkness.
But the reality is that with the disruptions that COVID-19 has had on parish life, we find ourselves having to adjust financially to keep going like so many other families and small businesses have had to do. We’ve cut expenses, reshaped the budget, and are doing what we can.
With our overall weekly giving still below our budget by 20% since July, and without the ability to do a special collection at church, we are hoping you will consider supporting us at Thanksgiving time with a one-time gift on Giving Tuesday—a day when we pause to remember and give thanks for the many good things organizations are doing to help others.
As we work to overcome our shortfall, we truly appreciate everything everyone is already doing, week after week, month after month, to support the parish we love. We’re persevering with hope, knowing God is blessing us and keeping us together. Thank you for considering a donation.
Giving Tuesday is officially December 1, 2020 but there's no reason you can't give before or after that date and see your impact instantly on our progress bar. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the IRS, and all proceeds will benefit the ministries of our parish, which includes our church and school.
