Stewardship - A Way of Life Fiscal Year: July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012 From July 1 to July 31 * Parish Income ** Parish Expenses Actual $ 55,141 $ 64,843 Budget $ 63,780 $ 63,780 * Income includes Sunday and Mortgage Payment collections ** Expenses include Parish Operating Costs and Mortgage For the past few weeks there have been a number of requests for a pilgrimage. I’m open to the possibility of leading one & would like feedback as to where potential pilgrims would like to go, & dates that would work the best. Generally, it seems that there is interest in visiting Italy, in particular Rome, as well as possibly Fatima. Scheduling wise, it also seems that Feb or March of 2012 is feasible.

Blood Pressure Screening–Sunday, August 7th after 8:30 Mass in parish nurse office Weekday Liturgy Schedule Week of August 7th Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday Friday at 8:30 A M Thursday at 7:30 P M Risen Christ Gardeners Each Sunday morning we distribute the fresh vegetable produce that God graces us with. We share with our community after the Sunday morning Masses & also with the food bank at St Vincent de Paul. We harvest each Saturday morning to assure that it is the freshest & most nutritious. We try to do this as families dedicated to loving together as Christ directed. Regrettably last Saturday we had no workers to harvest & therefore were unable to share on Sunday morning. We need help. If you would like to join us in harvesting and/ or in the garden, call or sign up for the Gardening group. We do much more than just vegetable gardening. We also grow a flower garden for church decorations & are expanding our fruit trees. We sponsor the very successful Welcoming vegetarian-from-our-garden Dinner for new families at Risen Christ, scheduled this year for Saturday, Sept 24, which is open to all parish members & intended to introduce & honor new members of our parish. We also put on a Pumpkin Carving Pot Luck the weekend before Halloween (Oct 20) where we carve the garden’s pumpkins & have family fun. You and/or your family can be involved in any or all of these activities. Working together we all grow together. God works in all our lives but our work is giving back to God through our community. Please join us harvesting with Fr Chase on Sat morning Sept 13 & find out how great our community can be. God bless you. Weeb Martin Around Town Searching For A Job?
