BUILDING FAITH, FAMILY, FUTURE

“BUILDING FAITH, FAMILY, FUTURE” CAPITAL CAMPAIGN PLEDGES
We thank all those who have returned a commitment card and made a financial commitment to our Capital Campaign. If you have not yet responded, we ask you to do so by placing your commitment card in the collection basket, drop it off at or mail it to the parish office. We will be sending a mailing to all those who have not yet responded because it is important for us to hear from everyone in order to achieve our dream.

STOCK DONATIONS
Parishioners have asked about making stock donations toward the capital campaign. This is a way of saving on capital gains taxes. If you choose this option, the stocks need to be made directly to the parish. Your broker will need information on the procedure to do that. Contact Father John for the information. Another way to contribute to the capital campaign for those who have to take mandatory IRA disbursements is to directly have those disbursements sent to the parish, which saves paying taxes on those disbursements. Contact Father John for that information.

CONTRIBUTION PAYMENT SCHEDULES
Beginning this week, the Diocese of Youngstown will be mailing information to those parishioners who have made pledges so that the payment process can begin. The notices will show the contribution schedule that you indicated on your commitment card. NOTE: When paying your capital campaign contribution, please make sure it is in a separate envelope or clearly marked “Capital Campaign” in the memo field of your checks.

CONTRIBUTOR PLAQUE
The Parish Council approved putting up a memorial plaque honoring all those who pledged towards our Capital Campaign. The plaque will be placed in the newly constructed area of the building. The final details concerning the plaque will be announced at a later date.

FISH

OUTREACH SUNDAY FOR FISH
FISH, our community food pantry, relies on the generosity of churches to stock it with essential items needed. Once a month, is designated as “Outreach Sunday.” This month’s “Outreach Sunday” items are paper towels, granola bars and pasta sauce. Please bring your donations next weekend and place under the wood table by the main entrance.

Holy Spirit PSR & Youth Group Activities

Cancellations
To find out if PSR or other activities have been cancelled due to weather or other reasons, please check the Holy Spirit Facebook page (Holy Spirit Catholic Church) or follow us on Twitter (@HolySpiritUNOH). Links to Facebook and Twitter can be found on the parish website www.holyspiritunoh.org

CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD RESUMES
Children’s Liturgy of the Word will resume the weekend of February 9/10th. Children’s liturgy will also be offered on the following dates throughout the year:

  • March 9/10
  • April 27/28

On these dates, children will be called forward by Father John after the opening blessing, blessed and led by an adult catechist to a prayer space in the meeting room to celebrate a separate Liturgy of the Word that is more appropriate to their level of understanding.

Adults are needed to join the team of children’s liturgy leaders. There’s no need to change your regular mass time and preparation and time commitments are minimal yet it provides a valuable ministry to the children and families of our parish. Contact Cathy Kasza at the parish office to help.

CREATING ON THE MARGINS CONTEST FOR TEENS
Consider putting your talents to use to address the issue of poverty in our country. The Catholic Campaign for Human Development sponsors an annual contest for teens, Creating on the Margins, to engage students in grades 7-12 by encouraging them to learn about poverty in the U.S., its root causes, and seek faith-inspired efforts to address poverty. See the youth bulletin board for more information or visit www.usccb.org/youthcontest.
