Understand that true leaders believe that they are not as important as those whom they serve;

 it's not about putting yourself above others,

 but rather raising others up to their full potential."

“Those who stay away from an election
 think that one vote will do no good.
 'Tis but one step more, 
to think one vote will do no harm.”

We want to thank the people who have participated in helping us reach our objective of providing ongoing funding for the upkeep of our Parish and support of several other charitable causes. Every year we start afresh under new contracts with the suppliers.  This means we only earn minimal return until our current year purchases reach a substantial level.  We ask you to be diligent in purchasing as many certificates as early in the year as possible so that we can earn maximum benefits for the Parish all year long.  Please continue to participate.  After all, the need to eat doesn't go away just because you went shopping last week.  Remember the tickets are redeemable at all times for the full-face value you paid for them, so you are never at risk.

The key to our success is for you to continue to use these services regularly, so we can continue to contribute to the support of your Parish.

God bless you and thank you for your support!
