We Do All Things In Charity
We have grown weary of hearing about COVID-19. Some of us vaguely remember what life was like before this wretched virus entered our lives. Yet we know if we keep the faith and persevere, God will see us through to the other side.
COVID-19 continues to impact our parish significantly. First, by keeping us apart. Many have not returned to campus to attend Mass, and this separation is creating a sense of loss within us. Here at Blessed Sacrament, we are staying strong, and we continue to offer Mass every day. We continue to live-stream Mass every day. Our office staff is here, every day, ready to serve and support those in need. Regardless of current circumstances, we are a fully functional Church committed to you and to this Community.
We are also being impacted in another important area. As a fully functional Church we continue to have operational expenses and ongoing financial commitments that need to be met. Without your support we cannot meet these obligations. Without your regular tithing we cannot meet the needs of this campus or the needs of our Community. While we cannot control the path of this virus we can control our commitment of regular giving.
We rely on your generosity to continue to meet our financial commitments. Thank you to all who have signed up for our online giving and continue to give. Thank you to all who continue to put your envelopes in the basket or send them in by mail. If you are able to do so, please remember us when planning your monthly or weekly budgets.
This virus has made us all stop and reevaluate what is truly important in our lives. Please remember we do all things in charity, and your charity is what keeps us going. I am praying for all the Blessed Sacrament families as we navigate these times of uncertainty together. May we continue to persevere in faith!
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us and persevere in running the race that lies before us while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the leader and perfecter of faith.” (Hebrews 12:1-2)
Peace in Christ,Father David
