Financial Stewardship - Contributions for the last weekend: $1,279.00 regular collection; $ 687.00 New Year’s Collection; and $105.00 Building Fund. Thanks for your generous support.



Coffee &Donuts Hosts -Host for Coffee & Donuts this week is The Livingston Family.   Host for Coffee and Donuts are needed.  If you can serve in this capacity, please sign up on the sheet provided in the vestibule.  For more information, call Anne Geiger at 226-0712.


Contribution Envelopes - As we begin this new year, make it an resolution or habit to use your contribution envelopes.  The contributions that are collected each week must travel through different individuals to be properly recorded and accounted for.  Their jobs would be much simpler if each parishioner, used and signed their envelope and recorded the amount on that envelope each week.  Cash contribution can not be applied to anyone, unless that contribution is in the proper contribution envelope.  So, if you have envelopes, use them.  If you don’t have envelopes, contact Fr. Brock, Frank Marascalco or Julia Tartt.  They will get you envelopes.


Happy Birthday
