FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: In the back of the church, on the bulletin board, the financial statements for the Fiscal Year 2023 have been posted. Thanks be to God we were able to close that year with a little over $33,000 surplus. I know that this is the result of the hard work of our volunteers who organize different fundraising events; our generous donors who keep us in mind; our workers/helpers who lend hand in repairing and fixing things around the parish for free or very little; and to all of you who support our parish so faithfully.
As you are aware, there are still so many things to do around our parish. We have an older building that needs constant attention and keeps us occupied most of the times. There are also the regular expenses associated with running the parish. However, we are also looking forward and planning to improve or add to the parish campus. One of those projects is our intention to paint the inside of the church as the paint is peeling off the ceiling and walls in an ever more increasing rate. The church painting projects are expensive, for which we will have to use our saved up money (and commence fundraising). We try to minimize our expenses as much as we are able. Please continue to support the parish. May God bless all our donors. As a sign of gratitude, we have a custom of offering a Mass for the benefactor of our parish every month.
SAINT SCHOLASTICA: February 10 is the feast of St. Scholastica, the Virgin. She was the sister of St Benedict, and she followed him into monastic monastic life, gathering around her a small community of virgins. Pope Gregory the Great (+604), in his book of Dialogues, speaks of the meeting of the siblings in a hamlet near Monte Cassino. She died around 547 and is buried there with her brother in the crypt of the basilica of Monte Cassino. Although the monastery was bombed during the Second World War, their tomb remained intact. The destroyed basilica was later rebuilt.
THE 2024 CATHOLIC CHARITIES APPEAL will take place next weekend (February 10-11) in our parish. The diocese is asking that we have an in-pew commitment process that weekend. This year’s appeal theme is “Transformed by your love.” Your generous support will transform the lives of others, to offer dignity, possibilities and companionship to those who are most vulnerable.
LAST WEEKEND’S COLLECTION: Collection: $2,166; Flowers: $100; Candles: $1,209; in loving memory of Kálmán Takács: $200; in loving memory of Viktor Falk: $670. May God reward your generosity in supporting the church. Thank you for sending in your donations by mail or using our website https://stemeric.com/donations/.
