Everyone whose heart was moved and whose spirit prompted him came and brought an offering to the Lord...Exodus 35: 21

In reflecting on the past few months and how distinctly different our lives have been, I searched scripture for an appropo reference. From Exodus, this reading defines St. Francis Xavier. As a community of faith, our parishioners express their commitment to who we are with abundance. In March when we were asked to close the church, we asked for continued financial support as we streamed mass each week. You responded. As we shaped the plans to provide Mass, Eucharist Distribution, Ministry programming and Community Outreach, you continued to engage. Our food drive in support of St. Vincent de Paul yielded a pantry overflowing with food and supplies. For those who couldn't purchase items, you responded richly with monetary gifts.
