Dear Friends and Partners in ministry!
I would like to ask you to take a moment to watch this brief YouTube video entitled The Water Parable. I think it captures the essence of the theme for this year’s annual Fall Stewardship campaign: “Faith-Filled Generosity“. The culmination of our fall campaign will be Sunday, November 22nd (The Feast of Christ the King). Next week we will be sending a link to our new electronic version of the Estimate of Giving card, which we will be asking members of the parish to complete. We will bless and dedicate all 2021 pledge commitments during the liturgy on November 22nd. I also want to remind you that we will be doing a 2021 Stewardship CHALLENGE again this year. A group of anonymous donors in the parish have pledged to give a special challenge gift if 25 members of Good Shepherd either: increase their weekly pledge by $5.00 per week; sign up for Vanco Simply Giving program or pledge for the first time. Last year 48 members of the parish “accepted the challenge“. We hope to exceed that number this year! I want to thank you, in advance, for prayerfully considering your response to the question: “What is God asking me to give, in terms of my Time/Talent and Treasure” in 2021??”. May God bless you and may God bless the decisions you make regarding your Stewardship of Life!
Fr. Dave Snyder+
