Pastor’s Prose

I have mentioned several times this fiscal year that $5500 is needed per week as budgeted for the parish to fulfill its financial obligations. Those obligations include: salaries, payroll taxes, employee benefits, telephone, utilities, insurance, building maintenance and repair, office supplies, postage, religious education books, materials and supplies, food, Chancery assessment, priest retirement, and Catholic Sun subscriptions. So, you see, we get quite a bit for our money.

For the month of October—with four Sundays—we will need to collect $22,000 or $5500 per week. (We are also carrying over the shortfall for August and September, so in actuality $25,000 is needed.)

I thank you all for your generosity in assisting in the Mission and Ministry of Jesus Christ through the Roman Catholic Parish of Saint Charles Borromeo. — Fr. Loren Gonzales

Casino Trip

Last chance to sign up for the Trip to Fort Mc Dowell Casino sponsored by the Social Committee. The bus is almost full but we’ll make room for you! The bus will leave the parking lot at 9 AM and leave the casino at 4:30 PM on Saturday October 11, 2008. Remember tickets are $10. Proceeds go to the Church. The Casino will give you $10 when you leave the bus. It’s a win-win for everyone! Please see Maria Badame after Mass or call 623-322-3868 for information.


A big THANK YOU to everyone who has donated, clipped and traded coupons for the Parish coupon box. For those of you who haven’t tried it, I invite you to take a look and see how many ways there are to save on your grocery, retail and restaurant bills. The coupons donated have already blessed so many others including military families overseas and the St. Vincent de Paul Ministry. So please continue to donate your Sunday coupon inserts or any coupons you don’t want and pick up some that you do. Please place any unclipped coupon donations under the coupon box and they will be clipped and added to the box. Church@YourSensibleSpending.com or call 623-878-4708 for more information.
