Time and Talent Surveys --- get 'em in!
If you missed Mass at St. Anselm this week, you missed our annual Time and Talent Survey and our Time and Talent Fair...as well as Coffee and Donuts Sunday!
But, not to worry! We still want you to fill out a Time and Talent Survey for the coming year.
You can even do it online! Check out the front-page of our Parish Website!
There will even be a drawing for a prize for those members completing their survey online! We did the same drawing after all of the Masses this weekend, for all who filled out their survey and turned them in right away! We awarded Gift Cards from American Express for $25 to one person after each of the Masses!
We'll have the same prize for all who complete their form online....another chance to win a $25 AX Gift Card!
We ask all parishioners to prayerfully consider how they will practice good stewardship of our time, talent and treasure in the coming year. I ask everybody to be REALISTIC in what you sign up for. If you're too young to drive yourself to Mass, then maybe you can volunteer to do things around the parish that don't require a driver's license. If you're on a fixed income, be realistic about your monthly donations. If you're a busy parent, balancing work, school, and family....be realistic...maybe you can only help with one event this year.
The Lord doesn't ask for the impossible, but rather for a realistic sacrifice to build up the community.
Let's help each other be good and true stewards!
