Dear Stewards of Holy Cross,

2017 is nearly completed and I marveled at the speed in which a year passes.  The year is nearly over as I offered my profound thanks to all of our Stewards who have made their yearly financial offering supporting our community as we preach to Word of God and welcome new families to Holy Cross.  

It is with gratitude and joy that I thank you for making such a sacrificial and important financial commitment. Please take a few moments to pray and think about the monetary pledge you make for our parish, either through our website,  or by filling out the pledge form you received by mail, pledging in faith your financial commitment to Holy Cross for 2017. It represents you and your love for our Lord and His Church of the Holy Cross.

However, it is important to keep in mind that a $50 per week for 52 weeks of the year is what Holy Cross needs to meet its ministry commitments and operating expenses.  Every steward of Holy Cross is asked to help us meet this goal of $2500 per family per year.

Yes, all of us feel the challenge to meet our daily obligations. And many of us are witnesses to our Lord’s miraculous and lifesaving interventions. Placing our church parish at the top of our financial priority list tells God that we consider His love and care most important.  For it is through the stewardship that we are called by God to offer, that we express our genuine love and dedication to Him.  In so doing, we continue to receive His grace, mercy, and abundant and compassionate care a hundred fold. 

I encourage those families who still have not made their financial commitment to Holy Cross to do so today.  It is important for you, your family, and your parish family. We all collectively make our parish strong and vibrant.

Thank you for your prayerful commitment that not only helps sustain our parish but collectively, strengthens our commitment to serve Him who has sacrificed so much for us.

In Christ’s love,
Father Peter Salmas
