October 2014Time to Finish ABCD Pledges

Although we have, as a community, reached our 2014 annual goal for the Archbishop’s Charities and Development appeal, there are still some $69,000 worth of pledges that have not yet been completed.

As you may know, everything that is collected over and above the required goal is scheduled to come back to the parish. Here at Little Flower, we have already budgeted for the total pledges, and anticipate, as well as need, all the pledges to be complete.

Thank you for helping us bring ABCD 2014 to a successful conclusion.

November 2014Online Giving

Our parish is offering a convenient service for contributions!

Online Giving is a web-based application that allows you to start, stop and change your contributions at any time. Please notice that our offering envelops now have a check box which indicates “I’ve given online”, which you can use to present during offertory at Mass.

Online Giving is very easy to use and requires no special knowledge other than how to access the internet.

October 2014New Restrooms at Comber Hall

Construction will soon begin to completely replace the first floor restrooms in our historic Comber Hall. As you may have heard, the floor collapsed in the men’s restroom, due to many years of water leakage and damage.

When the ladies’ restroom was concurrently evaluated, it was determined that a similar scenario could be averted with the replacement of the women’s restroom as well.

As such, within a month, the newly replaced and designed restrooms will be open again for public use. Insurance is covering all but a $5,000 deductible. If anyone can help underwrite this, it would be greatly appreciated. See Jorge Perez, our Director of Advancement.

October 2014Memorial Bricks Available!

Ground breaking for the grotto in honor of Saint Therese, the Little Flower, near the entrance of the church office building, will take place in the Spring.

The entire project, which will include a memorial brick patio, will be done in time for the 90th anniversary celebration in 2016. There are now ample opportunities to purchase bricks and have them inscribed with your name, or that of loved ones, as we prepare to break ground and install the new brick patio and grotto.

Memorialized bricks are now available for a donation of $125. For more information, contact Mark Landia at the Information Booth or the Communications Office.
