Stewardship Council Active at Holy Rosary
The Stewardship Council has been busy with this year's Stewardship Renewal. The theme of "We Are God's Hands" was chosen. The idea of a banner with the congregation holding out their hands was discussed and with the generous donation from Just Shoot Me Photographics, it became a reality. The idea of stewardship was started with a Stewardship Prayer being read for about a month before we conducted the renewal weekends. A witness talk was given by Larry Snyder at all of the masses and the Here I Am Booklets were positioned in the pews for people to see all the areas of ministry that require volunteers to be successful. The following Sunday the Time, Talent, and Treasure brochures were put in the pews for people to fill out at the beginning of Mass and brought up at the time of the offering. The Time, Talent and Treasure brochures were tabulated and reports were created for each ministry. The reports were mailed to each of the heads of the ministry to contact any new people who were interested in the ministry and provide training so as to get them involved.
These are pictures of the Stewardship Council members (Roger Applegarth and Dale Collins) hanging the "We Are God's Hands" banner in the church with the help of Gretchen Rischling.
FAITH FORMATION CLASSES HAVE STARTED - ARE YOUR CHILDREN REGISTERED?
Faith Formation classes have started. Our class numbers are much smaller this year, indicating that many children have not registered. Please take the time to come to the parish center office to fill out a registration form. We miss your children. Several students asked me where some of the last year's students were. I told them, "I don't know."
We are here to help you in instructing your children in their Catholic faith. If you have any questions, please contact Noreen Placek 762-2830.
