Weekly Bulletin 11/22/15

Dear Parishioner,

As the calendar year draws to a close, allow me to remind you that it might be an effective time to make a charitable donation. Depending on your tax situation, gifts to charitable causes are often able to reduce your overall tax payment. Our Parish Endowment Fund could serve as a worthy recipient of your generosity. Not only does the Endowment invest your gifts for the future needs of St. Noel, it has over the last few years been able to defray the cost of current ministerial efforts: Bringing the women of CEPROSI from Nicaragua to offer our annual mission appeal and supporting our annual High School Retreat. Gifts to the Endowment increase our ability to carry out our mission of spiritual growth and service.

Of course if you prefer to offer a year-end gift to St. Noel directly, you can simply place it in the offertory basket or send it to the parish office. As always, a complete report of any offerings to St. Noel will be included in your yearly donation statement which you will receive by the end of January 2016.

Thank you for all the ways that you support our parish by your time, service, and financial offerings.

Fr.George
