Saying thank you for our parish

December 4—Many thanks to so many who have already given their annual gift to the Parish Appreciation Annual Fund. As you may know, we have some projects that we would like to accomplish this spring to include: a new state of the art digital sign for our school; a repaving of the school and church parking lot, in much need of repair for safety reasons; and a new storage facility to receive tables and chairs from St. Benedict School, now in the process of being sold. Many have been generous with gifts of $1,000, $500 and the suggested amount of $400, but please know that–whatever gift you give as a way of saying thank you for the parish we love and call home–it is much appreciated and will help us reach, and even surpass, the amount raised last year. If you did not receive a letter with a gift card and envelope, they are available in the parish office or you can simply mark an envelope “Annual Appeal.” Please include your budget number so that we can credit your account for tax purposes. Speaking of taxes, this can be a great way at the end of the year to get a deduction on your taxes. The 10 a.m. Mass on New Year’s Day will be offered for the intentions of all our donors as a way of saying thanks. God bless you in this new year for your kind generosity.   Have a blessed Advent, Fr. Bob Marciano
