From our Pastor as of March 26, 2020
Our Faithful Approach
As your pastor, let us take a moment and reflect on all God’s blessings and graces. I extend to you a heartful thank you to those who have continued their financial support of the parish by mailing in your envelopes, and those who have reached out to us to sign up for online giving. Our parish is truly blessed with generous, caring and faithful members.
I recognize this crisis has hit many of our families hard; some are facing not only the risk of falling ill, but also a significant disruption in their employment and the ability to provide for themselves. If you are among those who can help with the financial needs of the parish during these difficult times while others cannot, we ask you to please consider doing so. Without a weekly offering our parish faces great uncertainty. Please consider signing up for Online Giving at https://sienachurch.churchgiving.com.
I believe that God will carry us through these dark days, and I look forward to the day we can all join to worship, give thanks and serve as one family of God. Let us ask for the intercession of our patron saint, St. Catherine of Siena, to strengthen and empower us. St. Catherine of Siena pray for us.
As a reminder, due to the high volume of calls, we are collecting non-perishable food to ensure food assistance is maintained to our local families in need. We are grateful for the parish community’s support in making our response efforts possible. Collection bins have been placed outside the Church entrance doors. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, I am here for you during these difficult and challenging times. Do not hesitate to reach out to me. God Bless. Please be safe and let us as one Church, one body of Christ, continue to pray without ceasing.
