Reponsorial PsalmLet us go rejoicing to the house o the Lord
Dear Parishioners of Our Lady of La Vang,
Today is the First Sunday of Advent, we begin our new liturgical Year- Cycle A- the Year of St. Mathew. In the spirit of the New Liturgical Year of the Church, we want to report to you our Annual Parish Financial Report 2012- 2013. First, we express our special thank our Almighty God for all the blessings that he has bestowed upon our parish during the last year. Secondly, together with Father Bao and the entire parish, we want to express our deepest thanks to all of you- parishioners and visitors of Our Lady of La Vang who have graciously donated your gifts, talents and time for the progress of our parish. Your weekly contributions have enhanced greatly the finance of our parish.
If you look at the Revenue column, the biggest contributions are in the Sundays and the Holy Days Collections. We hope that this coming New Year 2014, you will be able to increase your weekly donation a little bit more, so we will be able to pay our diocesan debts. Presently as of October 31, 2013, we still owe the diocese with the amount of $374.299.96 Last year, we were able to pay $114,000 for the diocese. Again, with your increase in weekly donation, we will be able to pay more of our debts. Moreover, we hope you will continue to pledge and donate $400 dollars each family in order to help our diocese with Christ Forever Capital Campaign. Our parish commitment is $450,000 dollars. We also hope that you will be able to pledge for our new building project outside of the Church and the Shrine of Our Lady of La Vang in order to complete our parish building plan. Our parish plan for the coming New Year is to have more fundraisings for the parish, especially making Banh Chung-Vietnamese Rice Cake for the New Year 2014. If you would like to order Banh Chung, please make a pre-order so we are able to fulfill your wishes. You know that our parish is still a young parish. It only established for seven years. It grows very rapidly. We need your generous contributions in order to operate our parish, to pay our debts and to plan for our future. We hope that you will continue to support more us with your weekly contributions. Your financial support is very important for the life of our parish. Once again, we are very grateful for your gifts, talents and time for our parish. Please continue to pray, to sacrifice and to donate more generously with your financial contributions. May Jesus through the intercession of Our Lady of La Vang bless all of you with joy, peace and love.
Your humble Servant in Jesus Christ the King and Our Lady of La Vang
