Have You Heard About Our Improved Memorial Gift Program?
As our renovation takes shape before our very eyes, an improved Memorial Gift Program will soon be coming online as part of our ongoing Renew Our Church Campaign. This program will provide many wonderful opportunities for parishioners to honor a person, group or occasion with an enduring meaningful gift to our parish community. If you requested a Memorial Gift as part of your original pledge to the “Renew Our Church” campaign, you will be contacted in the next few weeks by a Gift Team member to confirm and update your request. Please call 770-641-9720 770-641-9720 if your phone number on record is not current. If you would prefer contact by email, please notify Kathy

Archbishop’s Annual Appeal 2015: “All this I Do for the Sake of the Gospel”
The 2015 Archbishop’s Annual Appeal is now underway. Parishioners should be receiving a letter from Archbishop Gregory encouraging all to participate. The Annual Appeal funds the essential ministries of the Church in our archdiocese—ministries that, in many cases, are of service to our parish. Your gift to the Annual Appeal helps educate seminarians, train catechists and form engaged couples through pre-marital retreats, among many other services. We ask you to please be generous and “share from your substance, not from your surplus,” a guideline we’ve been given by Jesus Himself. Read More
CAMPAÑA ANNUAL DEL ARZOBISPO 2015: “Todo lo hago por el Evangelio” La Campaña Anual del Arzobispo 2015 está en marcha. Los feligreses estarán recibiendo una carta del Arzobispo Gregory alentándolos a que participen. La Campaña financia los ministerios esenciales de la Iglesia en nuestra arquidiócesis, ministerios que en muchos casos sirven a la parroquia. Por ejemplo, el dinero de la campaña apoya a la educación de seminaristas, entrena a catequistas y ayuda a las parejas comprometidas para casarse a través de retiros, entre otros servicios. Les pedimos que por favor, sean generosos y “compartan de lo que tienen y no de lo que les sobra” como el mismo Jesús nos ha dicho. Leer más.
