A Few Words From Fr. Steve

Dear Friends,

The Grand Annual Collection has been in process since the beginning of last spring. To the households who have contributed, we are most grateful for your generosity.

We continue to accept gifts. Please know that it is so very important for everyone to help our parish keep up with the financial demands that are upon us. Maybe you would like to make a contribution from your tax returns. We really need to reach this year's goal of $100,000.00 so that we can continue to balance the budget and pay the bills.

This year, as you probably can imagine, one of our biggest expenses has been the continual upkeep of the property and fuel. As we move forward, we continue to look at ways to bring the church building back to its original beauty.

As in your own homes, it is so important for us to do maintenance before things deteriorate too badly. One of the major problems in the Archdiocese of Boston is that many of our buildings need major renovations because no one kept up with basic maintenance and needed repairs. So far, we have managed to stay a step ahead of major problems, thanks to your generosity and an incredibly excellent facilities manager. I must ask those who have yet to make a donation to give serious and prayerful consideration to helping our parish reach its goal. We really need your help. Envelopes are still available at the doors of the church. I would urge everyone to make a donation as soon as possible. If you have already given and are able to do so, you might consider a slight increase. All gifts are greatly appreciated.

Many thanks for your consideration.

Love, Father Steve
