CHURCH BULLETIN

Did you know?


We have been making Cinnamon Bread for over 35 years?

We’ve made well over 55,000 loaves of bread.

We also make cinnamon buns once a month - September through April (except January).

Money from these two projects fund groundskeeping - including maintenance of trees, shrubs and new planting, candle, flowers, vestments, altar cloths, other miscellaneous things in and around the church. 


We always need your physical as well as financial support (buying the breads).

​​PARISH DEBT UPDATE
In 2015 we paid $61,163.01 on our Worship Space debt. After Fr. Bob challenged us to pay off the debt by our feast day, September 8th or 2017, many parishioners increased their giving or made one time donations. With this added support in 2016 we paid $173,628.15 on the debt. January 1st our Worship Space balance is $162,250.32.


As of April 1st our Worship Space Debt is down to $98,517.87! We would like to thank all those who have contributed to help us meet Fr. Bob’s challenge. We have 9 months to our feast day and with your continued support we will be able to have the Worship Space debt paid in full when we celebrate our parish feast day in September.
God is good all the time!
