TWENTY-SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME SEPTEMBER 26, 2010 Dear Friends, Next week, I will be speaking at all the Masses giving my State of the Parish Address. We live in challenging times and I hope that after hearing this address, you will better understand the challenges that face us as a parish community. The parish Finance Committee met in mid July. The result of the meeting was that we needed to lower expenses and bring in more income (easier said than done!). Our collections are up a little since Labor Day, but I will be discussing this issue more next week. I want you to know, in this letter, the things we have cut back on: Item/ Employee 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) 8) Monthly Savings Loomis Yellow Pages Ad Alhambra Water Calendars Student Workers Fr. Magat Cook (cut hours to 15 per week) Housekeeper (cut hours to 18 per week) Annual Savings $348.34 $103.00 $83.34 $1,742.14 $3,764.19 $4,180.00 $1,236.00 $1,000.00 $600.00 $ 20,905.68 $ 45,170.28 $453.51 $5,442.12 $2,404.57 $28,854.84 On July 1st, when I became your Pastor, we were losing $15,000 a month. With these eight cutbacks, we are saving the parish $8,899 a month. We are still running in the red to the tune of $6,101 a month, but that's a lot better than the $15,000 we were losing just a couple of months ago. You also need to know that the City has imposed a new tax on all unoccupied buildings. For [OLÄYZ[[PTLL]LY^LHYLILPUNHZZLZZLKMVY[OL*VU]LU[;OPZ^HZHUL_WLUZL[OH[^HZUV[ budgeted for, but we still have to pay it. Easy come, easy go. Next Sunday after the 9:30 Mass, we will have the blessing of the animals in honor of St. Francis of Assisi. The animals I'm talking about are your pets, not your kids! Come to the blessing and receive HILH\[PM\SJVSVYJLY[PÄJH[L^P[O`V\YWL[ZUHTLVUP[0OVWLHM[LY[OLISLZZPUN`V\YWL[Z^PSSILIL[[LY behaved! Happy St. Francis Day! Father Brian BIBLE STUDY CLASS is taking a vacation during the month of October. Classes will resume in November. CATHOLIC PROFESSIONAL AND BUSINESS CLUB will meet on Wednesday, October 13 from 5:30-7:30 pm with Monsignor James Tarantino, Vicar for Administration. The meeting will be held at Caesar's Restaurant, 2299 Powell Street at Bay Street. Come and join us! Week of September 19, 2010 First Collection Priests' Retirement $ 2,196.17 $ 1,637.07 Thank You! The Second Collection next Sunday is the monthly offering for parish maintenance. The sin of the rich man in today's parable was not that he was rich, but that he failed to share his wealth with the beggar at his gate. He knew Lazarus, perhaps walked by him every time he came in or out, but did nothing to relieve his suffering. Is there a Lazarus in my life? What am I doing to help him? UNRECOGNIZABLE All God’s angels come to us disguised. --James Russell Lowell Star of the Sea Festival 2010! Saturday, October 9th 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Please join us for our annual event!
