Fishing with St. James

Sunday, August 27, 2017

You will see in the financial part of the bulletin that our renovation debt amount is now $1,231,097 and we are paying $2,565 per month in interest. We have raised $1,641,581 in campaign funds and have $117,813 in pledges to be collected.

We will soon begin a “campaign renewal” to raise funds to pay off the debt and consider our financial and building and grounds needs for the future. We have contracted with “For the Greater” to lead our campaign renewal. Joe and Lois Akers will come back to work with us again after the very successful 2014 “Come Live in the Light” capital campaign. More information will be coming soon so that the good work we have done will be brought to completion.

Fifty years ago this Sunday, August 27, Sr. Catherine Ann Bones, SCL journeyed from her home in McCook, Nebraska and entered the Sisters of Charity in Leavenworth, Kansas. I give thanks and praise to God for her being at St. James for 1/50th of her faithful and fruitful ministry. I am grateful for Sr. Catherine’s presence and ministry at St. James and look forward to whatever part of the next 50 years she will serve here.

I am blessed by being in your midst to see the Lord’s word fulfilled in our life together.

I AM Joseph your brother. Fr. Joe Hannappel
