My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
This is that time of the year when I ask you to prayerfully consider your stewardship of time, talent, and treasure to St. Joseph Parish. Without it, we cannot survive and our ministries cannot be sustained.
Every year at this time, I am acutely aware of my responsibility as the pastor of our parish family to be both a good steward of the resources of our parish and to humbly ask you to offer your stewardship of our parish so that it will be able to accomplish our mission to proclaim Jesus Christ and His Truth to the communities we serve.
Too often we’ve been in a “survive mode” when it comes to parish stewardship—giving when there’s an emergency or a favorite cause. But why should we fight to survive when we can give to thrive? Perhaps we should unshackle ourselves from the decades-old, tired model of “Catholic fundraising” and last minute volunteering? It is time to stop fundraising merely to spend and volunteering to “fill the gap” at the last minute, but to give generously of all we have in order to stably accomplish the mission of our Faith in Jesus Christ in our community.
Our annual parish offertory budget is $1.25 million and we need every parishioner to make a generous pledge to meet that budget so we can continue to offer Divine worship and the Holy Sacraments, to preach the Gospel, to educate the young, to offer faith formation, to assist the poor, the sick, and the dying, our CRHP retreats, our outreach to those in need and the myriad other ministries we make happen here at St. Joseph’s, year in and year out.
Furthermore, in addition to giving sacrificially of your wealth, we need to give of your person, generously. The reason we are able to accomplish so many good labors on behalf of the Gospel is due to the willingness of people to serve in the name of Jesus Christ right here in our parish family. Our parish’s ministries require many volunteers, many servants willing to do the work and will of God in our parish, in ways both big and small.
This October, please consider and commit to pledging generously and making a sacrificial gift of your time, talent, and treasure. And may the Lord who has begun this good work in you bring it to fulfillment “through Him, with Him, and in Him!
Fr. Phillip W. De Vous
Do you need someone to talk to?
How sweet and full of comfort are the moments spent before the Blessed Sacrament.
Eucharistic Adoration is every Tuesday from 9:30 am until 10:00 pm. Benediction follows at 10:00 pm.
God, our Father, You made each of us to use our gifts in the Body of Christ. We ask that you inspire those in our Diocese whom you are calling to the priesthood to courageously follow Your will. Send laborers into Your great harvest so that the Gospel is preached, the poor are served with love, the suffering are comforted, and your people are strengthened by the sacraments. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
