My Dear People and Friends of St. Bride,
This past Sunday, May 8, 2016 – The Sunday Offering totaled $1326.00. That was a $700.00 drop from the week before, even though there were about 110 people in Church for Mother’s Day Mass. Thank you to all those who share so faithfully each week! Any increase will be greatly appreciated! Please try to make up for the weeks you may have missed.
The “To Teach Who Christ Is” campaign continues to draw people into giving. Our total pledged is now $128,900.00. There are other pledges still pending! 57 families already made pledges! Thank you to all who took part in the campaign. If you have not received any paperwork regarding making payments, please let me know!
As of May 11, 2016, 110 people had signed up to attend the Spring Luncheon taking place today. 76 of the 50/50 Raffle Tickets have been sold and about $800.00 in donations have come in. Your generosity is overwhelming. We are off now to have a wonderful afternoon of feasting, music and socializing.
Thanks for listening and God Bless your ongoing generosity! Fr. Bob Roll
May 15, 2016 - Pentecost Sunday
“The Advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and
remind you of all that I told you.” John 14:26
The materialism of our society lures us to concentrate more on what we want than on what God wants for us. The relativism of our world tells us that we should be tolerant of all things, that there is no absolute truth. Pray to the Holy Spirit to put the right words in our mouths when challenged about our faith.
