Special blessings for our Holy Name Society who do so much good for various charities. From their recent financial report, some of their donations went to: $8,000 St. Vincent de Paul ministry; $1,000 Coalition For Life; $1,000 Missouri Right To Life; $3,000 Year End gift to SMMA. Thanks to all Holy Name Society members for a job well done!
Our annual Advent Reconciliation Weekend will be Friday, December 21 and Saturday, December 22. Going to confession is a wonderful way to prepare for the celebration of Christ’s Birth. The Priest Schedule is shown above.
I wanted to make a suggestion to parishioners who turned 70 & 1/2 years old this year or will reach this milestone in 2019, and who have to make your first Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) if you have an IRA investment. Remember, we have established two endowment funds, one for our parish and one for our school. Not to “blow my own horn,” but when I turned 70 & 1/2, I decided to donate my first RMD to our SMMA School Endowment Fund. Again, just a “soft sell” suggestion to folks around my age – to help ensure the future of our parish and our school.
We also recently sent out an email reminder about Faith Direct, electronic financial support for our parish and all diocesan collections. It can be a very convenient way for you to contribute to our Sunday Col-lection and of course it is very beneficial to our parish. Call the Parish Office if you need further information.
