Father Branson's New Year's Resolutions
1) WAKE UP--Begin the day thanking the Lord. It is His day. Rejoice in it.
2) LOOK UP--Open your eyes to the Lord Jesus. Ask for his strength and blessings for the day through the anointing of his Holy Spirit. After all, he is your only Savior.
3) DRESS UP--Put on a smile. It improves your looks. It says something about your attitude. It enables Jesus living within you smile at others.
4) SHUT UP--Watch your tongue. Don't gossip. Don’t be judgmental. Say nice things. Learn to listen to others with love. Be sympathetic.
5) STAND UP--Take a stand for what you believe. Resist evil. Do good. Have the courage of your Christian convictions by practicing what you believe.
6) REACH UP--Spend time in prayer by talking to God with your adorations, confessions, thanksgivings and supplications to the Lord, by listening to Him in attentively reading the Bible and by applying its message to your life.
7) LIFT UP--Be available to help those in need--serving, supporting, and sharing. Try to find Jesus in others and serve him who lives in others

Information about our Capital Campaign
455 Registered Families
Who Has Pledged:
206 Registered Families
51 Non Registered Families
The Capital Campaign & the Building Fund are two separate, distinct funds.
The Capital Campaign is a pledge for the next 3 to 5 years specifically to build our building. The pledge total counts as collateral for a loan. The Building Fund is a restricted account that will be used to furnish our building with what we need inside—Chairs, tables, plates, pots, pans, etc. Currently we need total participation in the Capital Campaign in order to meet our goal of $1.5 million, so we can obtain a loan to build. At this point, the Capital Campaign is the more important of the two.
If you are new to the parish or find you do not have a packet, you may participate by picking up a blank packet at the Greeters Table. Whether you are new or not, we ask that you pray about an amount that you can give sacrificially, fill out the pledge card, drop it in the collection basket or mail it to the Parish Office or drop it off at the Parish Office. Together we can make our building happen!
Prayer to St. Michael
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle;
be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil;
may God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of the souls.
Prayers to Build Our Church
O Lord our God, whose might upholds all creation: Establish the work of our helpless hands; And make this
lowly church a place for the showing of Thy glory; and for all peoples a house of prayer pleasing in Thy sight. We pray Thee: Hear us and have mercy.
O God, with whom every good thing has its beginning, and through whom it is improved and increased: grant, we beseech Thee to us who cry to Thee, that this work, which we are beginning for the praise of Thy name, may be happily brought to completion through the never failing gift of Thy fatherly wisdom.
Through Christ our Lord
O Lord, Divine Architect, Creator of our Human Family;
Risen Jesus, Cornerstone of our Faith,
Lover of us all; Spirit of Wisdom,
Builder of community, Our Inspiration and Guide;
You call us to build up Your Kingdom. Bless us with generous hearts,
open minds, greater unity,
renewed vision, as we seek to build a house for celebration and worship.
May it be a home where all are welcomed, nourished, and empowered
to be Christ for others.
