Parish Appeal
September 26, 2014

Dear Parishioners,

We rely on God’s goodness at all times and in all seasons. Our blessings and gifts, all that we have and all that we are, come from God. These gifts are freely given. When we graciously and generously share them; we give glory, honor and praise to God and we become good stewards. It is in the context of good stewardship that we make our Parish Appeal each year in the fall.

Your gift to the St. Pius X Annual Appeal will enable us to balance our operating budget and make significant capital repairs and upgrades. This year, a portion of our Appeal will be set aside to add more outdoor lighting to our parking lots.

We invite every registered family in our Faith Community to consider making a gift to our Parish Annual Appeal. The response over the years at St. Pius X has been deeply gratifying and generously supportive. Relying on the advice of the Parish Finance Council, we have set a goal of $168,500. We believe that we can attain this goal, and hope that we can even surpass it. Therefore, every gift will make a difference. Broad-based participation will enable our parish to achieve its objectives.

Please put this Appeal to prayer. Whatever you discern, please be assured of our appreciation for your generosity and prayers of support. Your response in the Spirit of Stewardship will be gratefully received and prudently applied. Also, your response by October 31, 2014 would be most appreciated.

Please join us in prayer that this year’s Appeal will be successful and that our parish will remain a vibrant and faith-filled Faith Community. Thank you for your assistance.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
