Help create a vibrant future for St. Michael parish

 

through your sacrificial commitment

Honor the Past

Embrace the Present

Envision the Future

An increase in the offertory income at St. Michael will help us share our gifts to envision the future by:

•    Providing the necessary resources to meet our operating expenses and goals.

•    Honoring the heritage and traditions passed on to us to ensure the same blessings for our children and generations to follow.

•    Responding to the needs of all our parishioners.

•    Enhancing evangelization and outreach programs especially to the poor and needy.

To make our vision a reality and accomplish our objectives, we are asking every member of the St. Michael parish family to make a commitment to our future. We do not ask for equal gifts in your contribution envelopes, but instead ask for an equal sacrifice from everyone.

Dear Friends in Christ,

God has truly blessed St. Michael parish throughout our 57-year history. His Son, Jesus, calls us to generously respond to the Father in a sincere spirit of gratitude.

Inspired by this faith teaching, generations of Catholics at St. Michael shared their time, talent, and material resources to faithfully meet the spiritual and material needs of this parish community. They established a legacy that every parishioner benefits from today. St. Michael parish continues to make Jesus' mission a living expression of our Catholic faith.

 

Today, as we honor our historic past, we have much to accomplish in the present and for the future. Just as in the past, I am confident that the goodness and generosity of St. Michael parishioners will not only sustain, but help to grow this community of faith.

At all of the Masses this weekend we announced our Honor the Past - Embrace the Present - Envision the Future program. Every member of our parish is being asked to reflect on the blessings bestowed on them by the Lord as related to their level of financial support. Do we show our gratitude with a gift left over from our surplus, or do we faithfully and intentionally make a true sacrifice from our substance?

Please prayerfully reflect on how you will answer our Lord's call and make a financial commitment to St. Michael parish when invited to do so at the Masses this weekend. May our Lord and St. Michael bless us with open hearts and a true spirit of gratitude and sacrifice.

Sincerely in Christ,

 

Father Terry Hazel, Pastor
