FATHER'S SUMMER TALK SESSIONS
Click here to listen online! This is the talk that Father Colter offered three different times this summer.
“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” (Mt 28-19-20)
These words of Jesus are at the end of the gospel, as he is about to ascend to the Father. The passage is called The Great Commission. To fulfill that commission is to “evangelize,” that is, to proclaim the Good News. But what does it mean to be a disciple? Am I truly a disciple? What does it mean to say that Jesus is with us always? Do we experience this in our personal relationship with him? Listen and reflect on these very important questions.
NEXT STEP 2020
Thank you for everything you’ve given thus far to help us reach our parish goal of eliminating our obligation to the Archdiocese by the end of 2020.
- We’re making it easier for you to donate to the Next Step 2020 Campaign. Find green Next Step 2020 envelopes in the pews on the last Sunday of the month. The envelopes are also in the front of church (Atrium) and in back of church (Narthex) for you to make a donation at any time. Just put your cash or check inside one and drop it in the collection basket. Prefer to donate through EFT (electronic funds transfer)? Slips inside the envelopes make it easy to set up EFTs and pledges.
- If you have a current pledge, please check your records to see if you will be on track to fulfill it. Call the office if you would like help. We are counting on you and have your pledge in our calculations for meeting our goal!
ROLLOVER INTO TAX SAVINGS IN 2019
Don't need all of your 2019 Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)?
Consider an IRA Rollover Gift! You may direct your gift or portions of it to the parish, school's Annual Appeal, capital campaign, Fall Festival, and more. Let us know what you would like to do with it.
If you are 70 ½ or older with an IRA, you are required to start taking a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). You have to take the distribution whether you need the money for living expenses or not. If you don’t need those proceeds to make financial ends meet, did you know you can gift those proceeds directly to Saint Patrick Parish or St. Patrick Catholic School?
By doing so you pay no income tax on the RMD. More importantly, by doing so you help continue the important spiritual work our parish or school strives to do each and every day. It is important to first of all contact your IRA administrator or Regena in the Parish Office to see how you can roll over into tax savings while helping support our spiritual mission. A specific process and certain forms must be used, and they can help you through the simple steps.
