Thank you for your great example of stewardship during our recent parish mission. Here is the thank you note that Father Al received from Father DeSiano...
Dear Father Al,
I am so appreciative of your parish’s gift of $2524 to Paulist Evangelization Ministries for the parish mission I was privileged to conduct in Hershey during Lent. Thank you, and your parishioners, so much for this support.
This greatly helps us with our ministry... All the things we try to develop to help parishes reach out to inactive Catholics and unconnected people without a church. Mission is not easy - you cannot ask the people you are trying to help. You have to ask active Catholics, and your parishioners are now part of our mission.
I pray that the mission can serve as a resource to help orient your parishioners to their ability to renew their faith and reach out to others. The only way our church can survive is through a heightened sense of discipleship; and greater discipleship means a greater capacity to witness our faith and share it with others.
May God continue to bless you and all your wonderful parishioners.
Sincerely in Christ,
(Rev.) Frank DeSiano, CSP
