On Sunday, November 13th, longtime parishioner and future parish treasurer Steve Larsen gave a few remarks about stewardship during mass. We've asked him to repeat his sentiments here:
I spoke in church this past weekend about our pledge campaign. These are the things that I love about St. Michael’s: the beautiful pueblo revival sanctuary and grounds, the kind, caring and friendly people, our strong sense of social mission, Mother Clare and the whole school, the anglo-catholic liturgy, the music and the choir, our new Rector Brother Dave, Ila and the Guatemala Project, Father Jorge and Mission San Miguel, and I could go on and on.
No matter how bad we feel about what happened in the country last week, and I feel very bad, nothing has changed at St. Michael's. Nothing. We care about each other, we take care of each other and serve our community. And now, more than ever, we need our spiritual home. Our continued kindness to each other and devotion to Christ are the elements that will allow us to flourish and grow as children of God in these troubling times. And we will support St. Michael’s with our love, our time, and our pledges, as those before us have also done during the first 64 years of this parish's existence. Soli Gloria Deo. That is St. Michael’s.
This Sunday, November 20th, we will have an ingathering of pledge forms for 2017. If you have not already returned your pledge, please bring your completed form this Sunday. Extra pledge forms are in the back of the church. Thank you for your support, and for making St. Michael and All Angels your spiritual home.
