Messiah Veterans

 

Fr Richard has discovered that our commemoration of the men and women of Messiah who served in the armed forces ends with WW II.  We would like to create an accurate list of our Messiah veterans from subsequent armed conflicts, if you know of a veteran from our parish please submit their name and when they served to the parish office.

Stewardship Update

Thank you to all who have submitted their pledges and have responded so generously.  To date we have received 92 pledges totaling $150,900.  This brings us closer to our goal of 105 pledges and $160,000.  Our winter expenses for snow removal and heating oil have been far higher than we budgeted for.  Please consider making your pledge to help Messiah meet its expenses. There are green pledge cards available on the table in the narthex.  Thank you for your continued support of Messiah with your time, talent, and treasure.
