The Collection of May 3rd totaled $4,887.00 The money that is donated from our weekly collections is the only source of income to support our parish. Our weekly expenses reflect the minimum needed for all the church’s utilities, insurance fees, salaries, ongoing maintenance, repairs, and numerous other bills for operating expenses…. as well as the increasing costs for the many, many parish programs, ministries and services we offer here at OLG. If possible, if each of our parishioners could just increase your weekly contribution, BY ONE OR TWO DOLLARS it would greatly help offset the increasing costs faced by our church. We genuinely understand that these are difficult economic times and it’s not easy for any family to sacrifice even more right now. We want to assure you that every single penny donated goes right back into our church, the operations of our church and our parish programs. Once again, thank you for your continuing generosity.
