2017 STEWARDSHIP UPDATE
Please note: In order to be considered a "steward" of the parish you must complete a 2017 stewardship commitment card, available from our office or by the reception desk in the fellowship hall. If you would like to make automated payments for your stewardship, please contact your bank and ask about “Bill Pay”. It’s free for you and for us and all you need is our address.
Thank you for your faithfulness!

2017 YTD Pledged = $860,711; Received = $684,385; Budgeted = $910,000
