2019 Stewardship Pledge Reminder
The Stewardship Committee is asking for parishioners to kindly fill out a pledge card for 2019 if not already done so. We cannot process checks or monies without this vital information. This is a very important aspect of being a faithful steward to our Lord and helping our parish successfully proceed through 2019. Also, when leaving a check for stewardship, please note on your checks "stewardship 2019" or "2018", if you have a balance from last year's pledge. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Cathy Chadwick at 978-884-2149, or email me at Junecate52@yahoo.com. All information is kept strictly confidential. We are also looking for people to join our committee, so please consider adding your new energy and thoughts. We truly appreciate everyone's efforts of time, talent, and treasure.
Please fill out the newly created Proposed Event Form for any events that you may be planning to hold at the Annunciation Church, Nicholson Hall or St. Basil's Hall. The completed form should be given to Jen Cooper for review by the council and finance committee when reimbursement is necessary. This will allow us to improve our yearly financial record keeping.
