From the Desk of Fr. Marty Lukas

by Gesu Parish Toledo on 12/20/16

This Christmas we have a unique situation and challenge - Christmas occurs on a Sunday.  While this is nice and certainly makes my schedule a little less hectic, it does pose one concern.  Each year you are so generous with your Christmas offering, but you'll notice in your box of envelopes there is also an envelope designated for December 25 - and it is a Sunday envelope.  These weekend collections are budged for each year.  Could you see your self dropping two envelopes in the collection on Christmas? I'd ask you to please keep this in mind as you prepare your offering next week.

Finally, as the Big Day approaches, please try not to STRESS OUT!  What gets done gets done, what doesn't get done, doesn't get done.  The days ahead are meant to celebrate the wonderful gift of the birth of Jesus, our savior. The days give us time to spend with family and good friends. That's what's important. If every piece of tinsel isn't hung on the tree exactly correctly - that's OK!  It's still a time of joy and love.  Make it that...regardless of how the house looks!  God bless!  And have a great week!

The winners were Jean Buckley, a faithful member and volunteer with our St. Vincent de Paul Society, Joyce Graves, currently a part of the RCIA and will join the parish at Easter, and Margaret McCready, and we can't even begin to list all the wonderful things that Margaret does for Gesu.
