St. Andrew Bulletin - June 17, 2018

O, Lord, hear my voice for I have called to you; be my help.  Do not abandon or forsake me, O God, my Savior!  cf. Psalm 27 (26):7, 9


DAILY MASS SCHEDULE:  11:00 a.m. Monday, Thursday, and Friday.


Please keep in your prayers all of these young women and men who were recently Confirmed by our Bishop - Joseph Stanis, Cody Jamerson, Dominic Vrazel, Kelsy Sullivan, Lindsey Sullivan, Litzy Lopez, Alex Moreno, Cassandra Moreno, Christian Galicia, Giselle Garcia, Giselle Valdez, Vanessa Valdez-Colecio.  Holland Silver, who attends Sacred Heart, was unable to attend the Confirmation Mass due to a school conflict.  Fr. Fred has received permission from the Bishop to Confirm Holland at a Sunday Mass at Sacred Heart, which will take place sometime later this summer.


NEXT SATURDAY, JUNE 23, 8:00 A.M. TO 2:00 P.M. ST. ANDREW’S GUILD IS HOSTING ITS ANNUAL RUMMAGE SALE.  This is the Guild’s major fundraiser of the year, and your help and donations of gently-used items are needed.  Donations can be dropped off between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. this coming week (Monday, June 18, to Thursday, June 21).  On Wednesday, June 20, and Thursday, June 21, donations can also be brought to the church between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.  The Guild also needs volunteers to help receive, sort, and price donations during the week.  Volunteers are especially needed to help with setting up the sale on Friday and then for the sale itself on Saturday.


FFHL Information To Date:  Contributions total $49,475.00 for St. Andrew and $51,282.00 for Sacred Heart, a combined total of $100,757.00.  The Parish’s 25% of total contributions to date, minus expenses, is $10,960.54 for St. Andrew and $11,987.17 for Sacred Heart, a total of $22,947.71.  Accounts for these contributions are held in Diocesan savings accounts in Charlotte, and this past week Fr. Fred requested that the Diocese transfer $10,000.00 from St. Andrew and $11,000.00 from Sacred Heart to St. Andrew’s operating account to be used for upcoming rectory expenses.  As always, if anyone has questions concerning financial information, please talk with a member of the Finance Council (Sharon Middleton, Greg Meeker, and Kay Galletta) or contact the Parish Office.


Rectory Update:  While work has continued on the rectory, it is doubtful the remaining work will all be completed by the previously-scheduled move date of June 25, so the move has been rescheduled for Monday, July 2.  A year ago, the weeks of July 2 and 9 were reserved for Fr. Fred’s vacation, and we are hopeful that we can accomplish the move the week of July 2, and he can spend the following week with his family.


Why not keep a record for one week of how you spend your time? How much do the church and community organizations get of that time?
