As we come to the end of 2015, we want to thank you for your generous gifts throughout the year to support the ministries of Saint Patrick Catholic Church & School!

Sharing our treasure

This was a great year as we shared Christ’s love and hope with our neighbors and around the world and we welcomed the Jubilee Year of Mercy with our Church around the world.

Every year people ask how they can help our church and school as the year comes to a close. One of the most important ways to push our ministry to people forward is to sow a year-end financial gift.  Christmas is the perfect time of year to give a gift in honor of Jesus’s birth!

The need is real

As we close out the year, we are praying and working toward bridging the gap at the parish in weekly contributions needed to date and actual sacrificial giving— a nearly $60,000 difference.  At the school we are working toward reaching the Annual Fund 16 goal— we are just shy of the goal.  We believe God has big plans that He wants to make happen in the new year through the ministries and outreach efforts of St. Patrick— through people like you and me!  A major push now can position us to finish 2015 strong and create positive momentum going into the new year.

The MISSION given to us

Over the past several months we have heard several homilies about Mission— “the mission has us— we do not have a mission” exclaimed Father Jerry Graham, S.J. in a homily.  We are carrying out the mission of Jesus Christ.  It has been exciting to see our parish community rise up to take a fresh challenge to share Christ in every setting in our lives and in our community. We are indeed focused on reaching everyone— families, children and youth for Christ. Your partnership in faith, prayer and giving makes the difference.

Thank you for being accepting the mission Jesus has for us and for prayerfully considering how you can make a difference with a special year-end gift.

How to give

As you consider your charitable gifts between now and the end of the year, remember that gifts made now can generate income tax deductions that could help reduce your income tax remittance to the IRS.  The amount you save depends on tax rates and the portion of your gifts you are allowed to deduct.  Only gifts made by December 31 can help reduce the amount of taxes you will owe next April.

To receive a credit for the 2015 calendar year for tax purposes, all gifts need to be postmarked or in the office at Saint Patrick Catholic Church & School by December 31, 2015. Your gift can be placed in the collection basket at Mass too.

Better yet, make your donation online to ensure timely processing of your gift.
