Thanks to the generous contributions for the 4 days of collections. As you know the heating system has been very faulty and we struggled through the cold. We pray that the problem is repaired and we will be warm for the remainder of the season. Your contributions through the year will be helpful to keep our parish running as the utilities are very high and monthly bills are expensive. Please try to do your fair share to help with the finances of your parish. The dues envelopes should be used in the beginning of the year.
