2024 Stewardship Offertory Pledge
October 19, 2023
My Dear Parishioners,
We hope this note finds you well. As we set our sights on our vision for 2024 and beyond, we are reaching out to seek your support for our Stewardship Offertory Campaign. This year, we
are introducing an annual pledge process in the hope of revitalizing our offertory, which has been stagnant over the past six years.
Enclosed within this package (or online at www.olachurch.org/pledge), you will find a pledge card. As you consider filling it out, we encourage you to reflect on the countless blessings both received from and shared with our community. Our Lady of the Assumption has been a source of strength and inspiration for us all. Your choice of OLA is deeply appreciated.
When you make a pledge to Our Lady of the Assumption, you are contributing to more than just the financial aspects of our parish. Certainly, your support helps us cover essential expenses like utilities, building maintenance, staff salaries, and ministries. However, it also plays a vital role in nurturing the vibrant spirit of Christ's community here at OLA – a welcoming community built on faith, hope, joy, and love.
Your pledge is not merely a financial commitment; it is a shared gift that allows us all to come together and say, "I am delighted to be a part of the House of the Lord" (Psalm 122:1). It symbolizes our unity in faith and our shared mission to spread love and compassion.
We understand that these are challenging times, and some within our parish family may be facing financial difficulties. Every pledge, regardless of its size, contributes to meeting our operational and ministry expenses and helps us chart a promising path for our future.
If you have any questions about the Stewardship Offertory Campaign or would like to learn more about our vision for the future of the Body of Christ at OLA, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Your feedback and inquiries are always welcome and valued.
Thank you for your continued support and dedication to Our Lady of the Assumption. Together, we can make our vision for 2024 a reality.
Please submit your pledge by November 15th.
With gratitude and blessings,
Fr. Jim D. Duffy, S.M., Pastor
Lawrence Lee, Pastoral Council Chair
