To keep a lamp burning we have to keep putting oil in it.
First of all, we just wanted to say thank you to our parishioners for being an active and engaged community of St. Jerome. Our Sundays wouldn’t be the same without you. You’re already such an important part of our church. You donate your time. You give your prayers out freely and sincerely. Your love for God is so clear to everyone around you. Unfortunately, some projects can’t be completed with time and prayers alone. We’re aware that we do not know your financial situation, so if you are strapped for funds at the moment, please feel free to continue giving only what you can. However, if you are in a comfortable position to give a little extra this month, any amount would be greatly appreciated. Your generous tithing helps keep the lights on, the worship music playing, and the children’s library full of books and toys. Along with this letter, you may have noticed we also sent you a stamped and addressed envelope. Please consider using this to send whatever you feel able to give this month. We thank you in advance for your generosity. You and your family are in our prayers.
