COMMUNITY LIFE CENTER LOAN
Congratulations, our loan balance is down to $130,000.00. As you know, our goal is to get this loan paid-off by the end of the year. Therefore, beginning this weekend through the end of the year we will have a second collection every weekend solely for the purpose of paying this debt. We have an average weekend mass attendance of 2600 adults. If each of those adults contributed just $5.00 to the second collection every week we would raise $104,000.00! With that, proceeds from recent fundraisers and the Adopt-a-Pledge payments we could accomplish our pay-off goal. Please do your part, and bring that $5.00 bill every Sunday.
Thank you!!

PRESTAMO DEL CENTRO COMUNITARIO DE VIDA
Felicitaciones, el saldo de nuestra deuda ha bajado a $130,000.00. Como ustedes saben, nuestra meta es de poder pagar este
préstamo en su totalidad para fines de año. Entonces, empezando este fin de semana hasta finales de este año, la segunda colecta todos los fines de semana ira para el pago de esta deuda. Nosotros tenemos un promedio de 2600 adultos que atienden a Misa los fines de semana. Si cada uno de estos adultos contribuyerán $5.00 para la segunda colecta todas las semanas nosotros podremos recoger la cantidad de $104,000.00! Con eso, al igual que con otras funciones para recaudar fondos, y pagos del program de Adoptar-un Compromiso (Adoptar-una Estrella) nosotros podremos llegar a la meta de pagar esta deuda. Por favor hagan su parte y traigan esos $5.00 cada Domingo.
Muchas gracias!!
