Dear Incarnation Parishioners,
Happy New Year! I join you wholeheartedly in the hope that 2022 will bring an end to the Coronavirus, or at least a vast reduction in transmission. We are thankful that vaccines have been developed and we now have a fighting chance against this devastating disease. Since this time last year many of our programs, events and activities have been reinstated, sometimes in a downsized fashion, but we are expanding our activities as best we can in a safe manner. Hopefully, by this time next year, we will be back in full swing!
Well, it’s Stewardship time again, the time when we think about how we can repay some of our blessings from God. Stewardship is the responsibility we have to maintain and use wisely the gifts that God has bestowed. But, I like to think of it as if we are “caretakers of the world for God.” With this in mind, we have a responsibility to oversee our beloved Incarnation Parish by using our time, talent, and treasure to keep it thriving. So, please take a few minutes to fill out the questionnaires. We need to know how much time, talent, and treasure we can count on in the coming year so that we can make plans for upcoming programs, ministries, and activities and have enough human and financial resources to accomplish them.
This is an opportunity to put our gifts to good use in gratitude to God for the many blessings we enjoy each day – for instance, a place to live, food on the table, clothing to wear, heat in the winter and cool air in the summer, our Incarnation community of wonderful people, not to mention our families and friends who bring us love, companionship, and help sustain us. I know these are rough times for many, but if each family contributes a little, we can combine our time, talent, and treasure to continue serving God, our community, and our dear Incarnation families.
When completing the form online, please use your envelope ID number, which can be found on your mailing label.
May God bless you for your goodness and generosity!
Fr. Christian T. Moore, OFM Conv.
