Generous Giving to Maintain Our Parish

July 1 Through December 31, 2014

Our Lady of the Rosary parishioners are very generous. In addition to those who contribute cash, 661 parishioners use Church envelopes. (Church envelopes are needed for the parish to issue contribution amounts for tax purposes.)

During the past 6 months, the parish received a generous donation of $3,000 from the Bonide Foundation.

Most of the new banners hanging in the Church sanctuary were donated gifts as well as this yearís Advent Wreath...

It is also important to keep in perspective, that the time and talents of so many parishioners help with cost containment. It is impossible to acknowledge everyone. However, the Rectory outside deck was refinished and the living and dinning rooms were a donated service of time and talent. Mike Bambino, Joe Tamer and others generously donate their time and skills do much of the minor repairs to the Church. Kathy Seiselmyer and others who volunteer to help in the Parish Office. The electrician, Mike Paolozzi, helped repair an electrical problem in the Rectory. Parishioners clean the Church on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons as well as those who decorate the Church help with cost containment.
