Dear Fellow Parishioners.
As Trustees for Holy Family, Our Risen Savior and Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parishes, we are writing to you today to solicit your continued financial support to the parishes during these difficult times. Like you, we are parish members who are deeply invested in the success of our communities. With all Masses being canceled for the next several weeks, including last week, we feel the need to express our concerns regarding the potential shortfall from the offertory and envelope collection that are so important to meeting the financial needs of our three parishes.
The offertory and envelope collection represents a significant portion of our monthly income. With the cancellation of the Sunday Mass schedule now and into the unforeseen future, we are deeply concerned with our ability to meet the monthly operating expenses. Therefore, may we offer you this suggestion to help your particular parish during this time?
Prayfully consider what you would normally place it the collection basket (cash or envelope) and mail a check for your total donation for the next three to four week period to the parish officefor Holy Family at 271 Fourth Street Way, Fond du Lac, WI 54937 or to the parish office for Our Risen Savior and Presentation at 706 Michigan Ave., North Fond du Lac, WI 54937. We will see that your donation is promptly credited to your contribution account.
In addition, you have our assurance that every effort is being made to limit expenses as we work through these unprecedented times.
We thank you in advance for your continued efforts in keeping our parishes financially sound.
May the blessing of the Lord keep all of us safe.
