All Souls Day Photos

Please bring, to the Church vestibule, photos of your deceased love ones, that have died within the last year. We will be collecting photos beginning the weekend of Saturday, October 21st & Sunday the 22nd. We will have a table setup for you to place your photos. Please have your contact information on the back of the photo to ensure you get your photos back. We do not keep photos from year to year. Environment will be taking down the Altar the weekend of December 2nd and you may retrieve your photos then.

 

 

Monthly Financial Update

The table below shows the financial status of plate and unrestricted income collections with the offsetting General & Administrative Expenses through September business, normalized for the year.  Collections continue to be lower than budgeted.  Projects planned plus normal operating expenses for the remainder of the year may cause expenses to reach budgeted levels.  This out-of-balance projection will cause the parish to reach into savings before year end.

In view of potential budget shortcoming for the year your Holiday offering will be critical to the parish closing the gap to budget. Your consideration for generous giving over Christmas is appreciated. 

If you have any questions please feel free to contact our parish office or any one of the Parish Finance Council Members.

Knights of Columbus Fundraiser

 

 Fundraiser for People with Intellectual Disabilities

The Annual State-wide Fund Raising Drive for People with Intellectual Disabilities will be conducted by the Knights of Columbus Saturday & Sunday, November 4th & 5th.

 3 out of every 10 people in the US have some form of intellectual disability, there are 1,000 people within this county alone. They want to be just like us, to play sports and live normal lives. The funds you donate support programs in our own community that make a difference such as the St. Bernard Parish Special Education Program and Special Olympics.

The Knights will be outside after Mass to accept your donation to support these people. Look for those bright yellow designer aprons.

 Thank you in advance for your generosity.
