PEW COLLECTION FOR SUNDAY JUNE 24, 2018 - As we will not be having Liturgy in our Parish on Sunday June 24th Parishioners are kindly asked to add what they would normally offer in the weekly Stewardship/Pew Collection on that Sunday in either this Sunday's (June 17) or the following Sunday's (July 1) Collection basket. Your weekly pew collections are essential for meeting our parish budget for the year. Thank you for being mindful of this and heeding this request.
PARISH SURVEY - All parishioners have received a copy of our parish survey. As of this writing only 6 people have returned the form. Perhaps this seems like a daunting task as the form is several pages long. Feel free to fill out those areas that are applicable or for which you feel strongly about. It is to be completed by all parishioners, including youth. Please place the completed forms in the metal collection box on the candle desk or mail them into the Church by July 15, 2018.
ADULT EDUCATION DISCUSSION - Our Weekly Scripture Study Class will be in recess until the end of July
COMMUNITY SUPPER - Our next meal will be Monday June 11 at Calvary St. George Church and 6/18 at Christ Church in Stratford. Please see Mary or Eve if you wish to help.
CHURCH HALL CHAIR REPLACEMENT - THANK YOU PARISHIONERS! We have received sufficient pledges to purchase new chairs for the Church hall. The molded plastic chairs received the most votes, so we will be going with that. Please see Tom Decerbo to fulfill your pledge and make payment. You may also place your payment in an envelope clearly marked with your Name and Chair Pledge Payment and put it in the collection basket or in the metal donation box on the candle desk. Once we have received all the money pledged, they will be purchased. While we be using many of the existing chairs for our church picnics, a number of these chairs will be available for purchase at a suggested price of $5.00. If anyone is interested in purchasing chairs, please see Tom Decerbo.
CHURCH DUES - In preparation for the Semi-Annual Meeting in July, Our Church Treasurer will be compiling a list of those parishioners who are records indicate have not yet paid their Annual parish dues. We will send out a reminder via email/or US Mail to those on this list. If you receive a notification, if you have already paid your dues, we ask for your forgiveness and will be happy to correct our records. As a reminder Church dues are $75.00 per adult member. As always if you are experiencing a financial hardship please speak to Fr. Peter so that they can be waived if necessary.
