 Parish Picnic: Please mark your calendars for this year’s Parish Picnic to be held on Sunday, September 10thwhich is also the first day of our faith formation program. The picnic will be conducted by the youth and Benoy Varghese will be the adult co-ordinator.  Please plan to attend and make it a great success.


Mega Show: As announced earlier our Fund Raising Mega Show “Ningalodu Oppam” will be held on Sept 23rd Saturday at Franklin High school. If you have not taken tickets so far, we request you to get a ticket for you and help by selling one to your friend outside church.


Township Approval on Signage: There was a township hearing last week on our application for the signage permit and we received their approval. The contractor will soon start the signage project.


Church Cash Situation: The cash balance of our church is very low. As you know the only source of cash inflow we have is contributions from the parishioners through pledge and other means. Currently we have a gap in pledge as of end of June, besides other dues from feast sponsorships etc. Every year we realize most of the gap towards the end of the year. However, this year we need to address this gap now to meet the cash flow situation.  We have sent a gap report earlier this week. Please consider addressing any gap in your pledges or if possible, pre pay your pledge for the year.

Pledge Collections
: Our expected average weekly pledge collection is $9,032 and per family suggested minimum weekly contribution is $40. Last week our pledge collection was $7020. Thank you for your contributions and support.
