My Dear Fellow Parishioners:

     Our Small Christian Prayer Group thought it would be nice to offer bibles to parishioners.  The Word of God is truly an important part of our faith-walk with the Lord, so please consider taking a bible and meditating on the Word daily. They are available on a table in the upper vestibule.

     If anyone would like to serve as a Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, please see me  or give me a call.  Ministers are commissioned at Saint Michael at a simple ceremony during a weekend Mass.  Terms of service are usually 3 years, but can be adjusted to a greater or lesser tenure.  Please consider helping with this important ministry.

     Parish Council Nominations will take place the next 2 weekends, 2/15 & 16 and 2/22 & 23.  Our goal is to find candidates to fill the six sub-committee spots opening as of the end of May.  Your participation is greatly appreciated and is truly a help to me and the committee chairs.

     The Finance Council will be meeting shortly to accept the budget for the 2020 fiscal year and review the 2019 financial statement.  Once the details are approved, a formal report will be given at all Masses as well as inserted in the bulletin. If any questions or concerns arise, they can be directed to me or Peter Galla, chair of the council.

     Pot O’ Gold tickets are available after all weekend Masses, at the church office, and Miranda Home Inspectors office downtown.  If every family bought at least one ticket, we would achieve 1/3 of our goal, so please consider a purchase!  Remember, all proceeds go directly to Phase 2 of the Renovation Project!  Also, Mail-in Reservation Forms are in the pews. Please consider sharing these forms with relatives and friends who may be interested in helping our cause.  The drawing is Sun., March 8th at 4 p.m.

    “Raise the Roof” free-will collection envelopes have generated over $7550.00 to date with funds to be applied specifically toward the roof project.  Thank you to all who have donated!

     Please remember to contact the church office if you would like your Statement of Contributions for last year.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out by phone, text or email if you need me. 

May God bless us always,    

Deacon Victor
