This Ministry began a little while ago with some informal gatherings coordinated by Fr. Chris and Leah Lynady, but has now been formalized with Jen Losey and Jenny Sullivan serving as co-chairs under the present name 'The Young Families Group'. The group is working to find a new name as it caters to young families, singles, older families, and friends.
On The Pink Envelope and Other Money Matters at St. David’s - November 2013
The pink envelope…the Pledge Campaign…the Capital Campaign.
There’s a lot of talk about money right now at St. David’s. The Pledge Campaign is nothing new. Each year at this time, we’re asked to reflect prayerfully about the ways we want to support the mission of St. David’s: Worship, Outreach and Love for All. We’re asked to seriously consider what time and treasure we can devote to support the mission of our parish.
Each month has its own special flavor, for example December has Christmas, June the promise of summer holidays, April the birdsongs of spring, and November the feasts of Thanksgiving. We have our various Thanksgiving traditions, as we reach out to God and express our gratitude for the different things that mean much to us: our families, our friendships, jobs, prosperity, and health.
