Parish Mission / Misión Parroquial:

With Mary, we seek to know Christ better and to make him better known through our words and actions.
Con María, nosotros buscamos conocer mejor a Cristo y hacerlo conocer mejor a él por medio de nuestras acciones y palabras.

Due to a change in the processing company for our Electronic Funds program, we were unable to collect many of our electronic donations for August; therefore our income was substantially less than that budgeted and we are unable to report accurate collection information at this time. However, we did want to report the outstanding news that our Community Life Center loan balance is now only $209,780.00. Let’s all put that $5.00 in today’s second collection for Debt Reduction and we will be well on our way to meeting our goal to pay this loan off by year-end. The balance of the loan on the church is now $782,916.00 so we finally have reduced our overall debt to less than $1,000,000.00. Congratulations and thank you!

Debido al cambio de la compañia que procesa el programa de Fondos Electronicos, nosotros no pudismo colectar muchas de las donaciones electronicas para el mes de Agosto. Por eso nuestra entrada fué mucho menos de lo que teniamos en el presupuesto y por eso no podumos dar un reporte exacto de la información de las colectas para el mes de Agosto. En todo caso, queriamos reportar la gran noticia que el saldo del préstamo de nuestro Centro de Vida Comunitaria es ahora solamente de $209,780.00. Asi que pongamos $5.00 hoy en la segunda colecta para la reducción de la deuda y asi estaremos bien encaminados a nuestra meta de pagar esta deuda en su totalidad para fin de año. El saldo del préstamo de la iglesia es ahora $782,916.00 asi que finalmente hemos reducido nuestra deuda a menos de $1,000,000.00. Felicidades y gracias a todos Ustedes!!
