At this time of year, our hearts are moved even more to generosity. We buy gifts for those we love, we spend more on special foods to celebrate Christmas and we splurge to express our joy for all the blessings we have in our lives.
Hopefully we also remember the poor and those in need who don’t have the means to celebrate as some of us can.
We ask everyone also to remember the Church at Christmas.
We work hard year round to worship God as Christ commanded us, and to bring the Good News of salvation to all through the celebration of the sacraments and the many ministries we have here at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi.
We can only do this because of the generosity of our members and visitors who support our parish. The Christmas collection and Christmas donations make up an important part of our annual budget.
If you haven’t done so already, please remember to offer a gift to the Church this year at Christmas. Help us to continue to bring the good news of the coming of the Lord Jesus to all.
Thank you and God Bless you this Christmas and always.
