On behalf of the St. Francis 2015 Stewardship Committee I want to thank each and every member of the parish who made a pledge for 2015. Our parish family is indeed fortunate to be in a much better financial position in 2015 than we faced in 2014. With continued work and the opportunities we have with a new Bishop, as well as a new Priest in Charge, we should reach our goal of a balanced parish budget for 2016.

As the year progresses, your Stewardship Committee asks that everyone consider additional funds to their pledge and give what you can, when you can, to move us closer to our goals. Our Vestry continues to consider many ideas for improving our programs, building and grounds. These great ideas can become plans and be realized only if we support the needs as they arise.

Our 2015 Stewardship campaign was a wonderful success thanks to your participation. Our future growth and well-being can only be attained with that same participation. As a St. Francis Family in Christ we support one another through our giving. Throughout 2015 may we, as members of that family, continue to build on our success.

                            God's peace,
                            Stewardship Committee Chair
