Congratulations! Thank you!

We have reached our goal in the Renew and Rebuild Campaign and have
received new pledges and donations to take us over our goal. In
fact, the more we go over our goal, the more money we receive back from the Archdiocese.

So, it is not too late to make a pledge or give a donation to Renew and Rebuild. There are pledge Forms in church, or I can scan you one. A very special Thank you to all who helped us reach our goal. Thank you to Loida Diaz-de Jesus, Keith Kemp, and Joe Nuzzi – our hard working team! Blessings and Prayers!

Our first funds from Renew and Rebuild have arrived just in time to help us pay for the new duct and roof work near the elevator in the church to stop a leak from harming the control panel in the elevator. We have had to bring in engineers and roofers to find the problem and get it fixed. Thank you for providing the funds.

The Christmas season comes to a close this weekend with the Baptism of the Lord. Jesus joins his life to our earthy life and invites us to share in his life. The Baptism that we receive unites our lives to that of Jesus Christ and gives us our identity. Throughout our lives we try to “put on Christ” and become the new person that we are meant to be. Do you know the date of your Baptism? Have you ever seen your Baptismal Certificate?
