The intentions of Pope Francis for the month of August:
- Universal: That volunteers may give themselves generously to the service of the needy.
- For Evangelization: That by setting aside our very selves, we may learn to be neighbors to those who find themselves on the margins of human life and society.
Dear Parishioners of OLM & OLS:
I hope everybody is enjoying summertime! It is time to relax and rest. May you come back refreshed and ready to roll.
Love and Prayers,
We Are Living Stones!
I, and the campaign committee, would like to thank all of the families who have participated in this campaign making it a great success.
We have received $315,036 in pledges from 155 parish families, with over 1,000 families yet to respond. We look forward to hearing from those families very soon. Currently, we are at 63% of goal from 12% of our parish. Please keep in mind that we will receive 50% of all monies collected above our Works of Mercy goal up to our goal of $43,000 and 60% of all monies collected over our goal. As of right now we have over $33,500 in cash and starting this October our parish will begin to receive its 50% share from the campaign over our Works of Mercy goal. We will continue to receive our share every quarter over the next 4 years. Our aim is to have 100% participation and it is only through prayer and sacrifice that we can make this a successful campaign.
Please make your gift today to reduce the number of phone calls and mailings our campaign committee will have to make. Pledge envelopes can be found in the pews and in the back of the church.
Thank you again for your continued support. – Fr. Marty
