Dear Friends,
Thank you so much to those who made a commitment to the ALL IS GIFT Offertory Increase Appeal. On behalf of the entire parish, thank you. If you’re still thinking about it, no worries. Turn in your card whenever you’re ready.  If you’re unable to make an increase, thank you for what you already do. In any case, to our parish community: thank you for what we do, and we are, here at SJA!

If you’re in a position to do some systematic and long term financial planning, look elsewhere in this bulletin for a brief paragraph some Deacon Dan about Planned giving. Also, if you’d like more information about On-Line Giving, feel free to give me a call at the parish office and I’ll walk you through the steps.

The next step of our ALL IS GIFT Project is the Parish Survey/Feedback Appeal. This survey is now complete and is ready to be mailed. It will also be available on-line on a website called Survey Monkey. I’m going to be working on that this week, so you can expect to receive the survey during the last week of January. Please take time to respond with your honest and constructive feedback and assessment of our parish ministry. The Parish Council and I, along with a professional marketing analyst will review the results to determine next steps. More information forthcoming.

And finally, save the dates: SJA Lenten Mission. Mondays during Lent: February 19 & 26; March 5, 12, 19, and 26. 7-8pm in church. Our Mission Speaker: Dr. Randy Rosenberg. Professor of Theology at St. Louis University and member of the SJA Community. Randy will present 6 inspiring and educational topics to nourish and enhance our Lent and prayer lives. More information forthcoming.

As always, know that you are loved dearly and prayed for daily.

Peace and prayers for you,

Fr. Craig T. Holway
