I would like to give thanks to God and to thank all of you who continue to serve one another, not only by your presence here every Sunday, but by your financial contributions to our parish family here at St. Alexander.
Below is our annual financial statement for the last fiscal year. I am proud and happy to announce that with the contributions of your generosity, we were able to have a year in which we were $11,186 dollars in the positive for our parish. That is truly an amazing act of generosity from one another for our parish. If you recall, about a month before the end of the fiscal year, I appealed to those who could help alleviate our deficit of $35,000 at the time. In roughly a month, your fellow parishioners were able to donate enough, so that, not only did we take a little off the deficit, as I was praying to at least do, but we eliminated the deficit and pushed ourselves to the $11,186 dollars to the good.
Again, I give thanks to God for the generosity of my parishioners and how well they try to take care of each other and their Church. Look around you to those next to you in this Church, as we have all contributed to this past year. God bless those who offered from home, and those who even increased their offering, to see in one another the family that Christ has given to us. A family that takes care of one another through their presence and offering, including financial, as Jesus encourages us in the Scriptures. May God bless us, St. Alexander, and our parish family in this upcoming year. Amen.
