frmike1smDear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As we look forward to Christmas, the New Year and the Jubilee of Mercy, let us reflect upon the manifold graces and blessings that have been bestowed upon our parish family from the Living God who provides. As disciples in mission, let us examine our response to the Gift of Hours: to pray, grow, serve, give and share in gratitude for all that our merciful Father has given us.

In this spirit of faithful stewardship, please give joyfully and generously in the Christmas Offertory, especially by the use of church envelopes or online giving.

Let us continue to support the monthly Cornerstone Breakfast, and assure once again in the spring a successful Bull Roast/Party with a Purpose for funds to construct a picnic and recreational pavilion.

Together we make St. Michael’s spiritually and financially sound; nurture a vibrant assembly of worship in solid spiritual guidance and faith-building; share the Joy of the Gospel with spiritual and corporal works of mercy; and offer wholesome hospitality and re-creative fellowship for children and youth, younger and older adults.

Thanks be to the Father for His Gift of Jesus and for the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit! And thank you, brothers and sisters in Christ, for your steadfast love and trust, leadership and commitment to St. Michael of Poplar Springs Roman Catholic Congregation.

In Christ Our Redeemer,

Rev. Michael J. Ruane
