I pray you are staying healthy in the midst of this crisis. I am offering a private Mass daily for the protection of our community.
This past week I gathered a Crisis Response Team with other parishioners in an attempt to deal with how the Coronavirus is affecting our parish. Specifically, our goal is to keep our community together. I’ve identified four areas of concern: Prayer/Liturgy, Communication, Service, and Finance.
I am writing you to ask for your continued financial support of Saint Francis de Sales Parish. When I arrived, I signed up for Parish Online Giving. I ask that you consider doing the same now: click the link, enter our zip code (19143), and sign up to give to de Sales. Donations will be taken in any way possible, but scheduled online giving helps our parish in the absence of a Sunday collection. We also can receive donations via PayPal.
Let us pray for each other and remain hopeful in the Lord Jesus Christ. Saint Francis de Sales, pray for us!
