For It Is In Giving That We Receive
The comforting, inspiring words of the prayer of St. Francis, “Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,” have brought serenity to millions of people over the years.They evoke powerful images, maybe more relevant today than ever before.
You good people of St. Mary’s are always generous, and you understand the verse in the St. Francis prayer that says, “For it is in giving that we receive.” We ask you to prayerfully consider your pledge for 2021, and if your personal situation allows, consider an increase. Most important though is your pledge during the campaign so an accurate budget can be developed.
Stewardship provides the largest part of the church’s income, so having pledges finalized in the fall helps greatly in budget planning for 2021, and allows the start of the new year on a solid financial foundation. Included here is a Pledge card, and they will be available in the church as well. We all have much to be grateful for and your Stewardship Committee is especially grateful for you and your commitment to St. Mary’s.
