Purpose of the “pink envelopes” - Stewardship Help

Enclosed in your envelope packet you will see “pink envelopes” entitled “Diocesan Stewardship Goal Assitance”. The purpose of these envelopes is to receive your contributions to help our parish close any gap between the St. Rita’s Target toward the Diocesan Stewardship Appeal (this year set at $78,392) and any shortfall in parishioner payments to the Diocese used for its operations.

 

This Pink Envelope is intended for use by those parishioners who do not feel comfortable making a pledge directly to the diocese but who would like to help the parish reach our Target by April 30. The Pink Envelopes are NOT intended for payments on any pledge your family has already made. Those should be sent directly to the diocese or placed in the Diocesan Appeal envelopes sent to your home.

 

Our Appeal has a shortfall of $36,000.  If you have not pledged and wish to contribute, please use the pink envelope.

June 14/15 Mission Appeal

The masses of June 14/15 will host a speaker for Mission Appeal.  The Mission Appeal collection will help overseas missionaries of the church.

 

Fr. Bill Donnelly, M.M. who served as a Maryknoll missioner in Central America will visit our Parish this coming weekend.  Fr. Bill will be happy to talk with any person who is interested in learning more about mission life or perhaps becoming an overseas missioner. 

 

“Maryknoll – The Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America- was established by the U.S. bishops in 1911 to witness the Gospel among the peoples and cultures of foreign lands. Maryknollers share the Good News, not only in word alone, but in practical and concrete actions –feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, giving shelter to the homeless, comforting the oppressed. Maryknoll depends entirely upon the prayers and support of its friends; we serve with profound gratitude for the generosity of our benefactors.”
