This weekend we begin our Diocesan Returning God’s Gifts Campaign. I truly would like you to be a part of this very important Campaign. The Returning God’s Gifts Campaign helps us in 4 areas:
- Catholic Education: Monies from the RGG helps with providing tuition assistance for Catholic School Students, teacher education and other important areas.
- Vocations: We are blessed to have 9 seminarians currently studying for the Diocese of Colorado Springs, including Matt Kane and Brandon Allen from our parish. Without your support for the RGG we would have to turn seminarians down because of lack of funding. Your generosity helps to form our next generation of priests! By the way we have three priests who have come from our Northern Deanery – Fr. Baron and Father Kochivar from Our Lady of the Visitation in Elizabeth and Father McCann from Ave Maria Parish in Parker.
- Catholic Charities: The work of Catholic Charities is best described by me as “the work of Christ, by being the hands, feet and heart of Christ!” Catholic Charities helps with direct client services to those in need, provides professional counseling services, in the Springs cares for the working poor and homeless with the Marian House Soup Kitchen, and here provides in close cooperation with the Saint Vincent de Paul Society bags of food for the working poor, elderly and the homeless. Our Catholic Charities offices provides ESL programs and immigrant services. Stop by the Catholic Charities office on 5th and Wilcox to learn more about their many services!
- Parish Rebate: RGG provides monies back to the parish for parish projects! Over the years we have used our rebate for debt reduction, a fire annunciation system, downstairs classroom remodel, Assisi Hall remodel and this year we are replacing the old 1966 windows in the Assisi Hall and the hallway.
Please continue to help us this year with our Diocesan Returning God’s Gifts Campaign. Together we can help to take care of these 4 very important areas!
I am going to return my pledge card! Please join me in helping our Diocese!
