Christmas Angels

This weekend (November 22/23) we will start – once again – our Christmas Angels ministry (not the CV Angel Project). There will be angel tags at the entrance of the church, each representing a child for whom we will provide Christmas gifts. Select a tag and make sure what they’ve asked is something you can provide. You don’t have to buy everything on the child’s list. Some tags may list a “dream item” like a bike – if you cannot afford a bike, buy something else on the list. Please do not wrap the gifts since parents want to know what their children are receiving. Please return the Angel Tag back together with the gifts. The tag number is important to ensure it is matched with the correct child. Please return the gifts no later than Sunday, December 14. Be an angel this Christmas season to someone in need! Bring a smile, joy, and a gift to someone needy this Christmas season.

Annual Ministry Appeal Report

Our assigned goal for the AMA was $10,900, all donations above the goal being returned to the parish. During the past Lent, we rallied together and decided to overachieve the goal and use the excess to repair the roofs of the church and hall. We pledged a total of $75,333 and were able to pay for the repairs with a little left over. Heartfelt thanks to all who participated, your generosity and dedication are touching. So far, $71,358 of the pledged amount has been received. If you have an unpaid balance of your pledge, please honor your pledge in the upcoming weeks as the AMA concludes at the end of December.

Thank you for making this event the biggest fundraising of our parish, ever!!

Natale Dinner – Mark your Calendar

On Wednesday, December 3, at 6:00pm, we will celebrate our first Natale Dinner. Socializing will start at 5:30pm. Chef Ray Lucido is going to prepare for us a delicious and traditional Italian Christmas dinner! This is an adult only event. You may bring your own bottle of wine or purchase your beverage from our bar. Thank you to all who have made reservations, you will receive a reminder by email a few days before the event.

Turkey Drive

Heartfelt thanks to all of you who brought turkeys and other food items towards our Hope’s Pantry and Manna Ministry. Because of your generosity we are going to provide much needed protein to many disadvantaged families and children. Their Thanksgiving feast will be special this year because of your love and care. Thank you on their behalf.
