Donors will receive special giveaways.
Giving blood is a simple thing to do, but it can make a big difference in the lives of others.
"Transition home for abused, abandoned or neglected children under 5 years old in Jinja-Uganda"
Let's give these children a chance to change their stories: www.stjosephshininglittlestars.com. Checks to the order of: H.E.L.P. International Bank Account: Chase #265928223.
Share with your family the Christmas Novena while we prepare for the birth of Jesus.
There are other simple ways of supporting our parish financially as well. Some members have their banks do a weekly or monthly check to the parish out of their account. Others write a monthly or yearly check. A further benefit of having a record of your sacrificial giving is that you can use that amount as a deduction from your yearly federal taxes. Most importantly, as a spiritual writer once said, "The Catholic's need to give is far greater than God's need to receive. It is the sign of a grateful heart that knows all blessings ultimately come from the hand of God." But God cannot be outdone in generosity. His reward for your sacrificial giving is, as Jesus says, more blessings, a hundred times over.
Please note that the contribution envelopes for 2020 are in
the rear of the Church.
If you have completed a registration form and requested envelopes you will find them there. Please take them as soon as possible so you can begin giving in the New Year.
Please take only one Calendar per family due to the amount we have is limited.
We will be collecting for the Christmas flowers on December 15 & 22 before and after Masses.
Christmas is a time when we pause to express our gratitude to God for the many blessings He has poured out upon our country and ourselves. Please bring all kinds of non-perishable foods starting immediately.
The collection boxes are located inside the Church by the doors. Thank you very much! Good Bless you!
