Parish Financial Information
The Stewardship Report for Sunday, January 18th is not
available this week due to the Martin Luther King
We have officially begun the new year of
2015. I would like to begin by thanking our
entire Mary Queen Community for once
more supporting our Diocesan Services
Fund (DSF). This past year, 2014, we
were given a goal of $156,000.00 to meet, which is
quite an undertaking. However due to your generosity
and giving spirit, we not only met our goal, but
exceeded it! Fifty percent of the amount exceeded is
returned back to Mary Queen. I sincerely thank you for
your generosity and willingness to support all the
efforts of our Archdiocese.

with others, and return them with increase to the
We pledge to our ongoing formation as stewards
and our responsibility to call others to that same
endeavor. Almighty and ever-faithful God, it is our
fervent hope and prayer that You who have begun
this good work in us will bring it to fulfillment in
Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen

catch people for Jesus, what kind of bait would you need?
As a family, make a list of ways each individual’s life and your
family life is influenced by your faith in Jesus. After
brainstorming the list, talk about a few of the items. Finally,
decide on one thing your family will do this week to put into
practice the faith you share.

Ladies of Mary Queen! The next Women’s Ministry
meeting is Monday February 9th, at 7:00 PM, in the mini
hall. If you have never attended one of our meetings, I
ask you to consider joining us and learning more about
our mission. There are no dues and all women of the
parish are automatically members. Being part of the
Women’s Ministry activities and events is a wonderful
way of demonstrating your Stewardship. There is always
something to fit how you would like to participate with
your special time, talents or treasures.
The Women’s Ministry continues its commitment this
month to the Mary Queen Food Pantry, please consider
donating one or more of the following personal hygiene
products when you come to the meeting: bath soap,
deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, conditioner,
shaving cream, razors, toilet paper, and women’s
feminine product. For more information, please visit
www.maryqueencatholicchurch.org. If you have any
questions or would like to be included in the Mary Queen
Women’s Ministry e-mail distribution, please contact
Phyllis Rinehart at [email protected] Hope to
see you there!
