Did you know? Faith Direct makes end-of-year giving easier

We are extremely grateful for the tax deductible end-of-year donations and Christmas gifts that have crossed our desks in these last days of 2012. We love you, and will keep you in our prayers. And as always, we will send you an annual tax letter. However, did you know that if you sign up with Faith Direct, our online stewardship service, you can log into your account at any time and see your charitable giving record? Tax early-birds can also log in and get an end-of-year statement for whatever they have donated through Faith Direct. Talk about making your life easier! Visit Faith Direct’s secure  setup now and get streamlined for 2013! Faith Direct can handle one-time and repeated gifts. Our parish code is CO398. Thank you!

Reserve poinsettia flowers in honor of a loved one!

Would you like to donate a poinsettia to honor or in memory of your loved one(s)? The festive plants will be used to decorate the Sanctuary for the Christmas Season. The names of those being honored or memorialized will appear in the bulletin and on the side altar. The suggested donation is $15 per poinsettia. Participation provides you with a great way to memorialize somebody, and helps defray the cost of making Saint Joseph Church a beautiful place to worship during the Christmas season. To reserve a poinsettia, stop by or call the parish offices.

Jesse Tree gifts deadline
