DMF Shortfall- Second Collections
Over the past several years we have failed to reach our assessed goal for the Diocesan Ministry Fund (DMF). As you are aware the DMF is an essential fund for the everyday ministry of the Diocese of Pueblo. The funds that are raised during the DMF Campaign allow the Bishop to do essential ministry of the Gospel. Every year parishes in the diocese are assessed a goal based on their weekend offertory. Unfortunately, we have failed to receive sufficient support for this assessment in all three of our parish communities. Since this assessment is not optional, we are forced to pay the shortfall from our parish funds. Over the years this has become a burden that has affected our annual budget and limited our own ministry of the Gospel.
In order to lessen the burden on our annual budget we will be taking up a second collection at Mass every weekend until our assessment is reached. This second collection will be called “A Dollar Drive”. Please think about helping out with this collection by adding a dollar or more to this second collection. If you have not yet made a pledge for this year’s DMF campaign it is not too late. Pledge cards can be found in the back of the church. God Bless you all and may we remember that the pledge we make is a visible sign of Christian Stewardship.
Have you ever thought about becoming a Catechist? Our churches are always in need of Catechists, Aides, Substitutes and Youth or Young Adult's to volunteer their time to our newest members of our faith. Please call or talk to a priest or deacon about taking a step toward the future of our church. Middle School and High School Youth are strongly encouraged to come forward as Aides for the elementary grades. If you would like more information on helping out with 1st- 5th grade catechism, please contact Deacon Jerry LeBlanc at 719-850-0526. If you would like to help with Middle School or High School, please talk to Father Derrek 719-852-2673.
