At the Parish Meeting in January, the Financial Report – and our deficit position –were discussed. The Finance Council recommended an increased giving campaign – with a twist. Anonymous parishioners had donated $300 gift cards to be raffled if a monthly goal of $32,368 was reached by the end of March.

Our March total was $28,880, 11 percent below goal, or $872 short per week. April offers a clean slate, and it was decided to extend the campaign for another month. (Contributions will be adjusted for the Easter collection.)

Again, If you have increased your donation, thank you very much. If you have not, and it’s not a burden to do so, please consider what you might be able to give.
