Stewardship Canvas Update!

Each Lent, Saint Miriam uses the season to reflect on God’s goodness and generosity towards us. Then, we look at what we give and how we honor that generosity. It is about being god stewards, but also about honoring and supporting all that we have at our beautiful parish! This year, we ask that you reflect on being a good Christian steward! 
 
We fell short and many did not return their annual pledge cards so we will; be reaching out to you this week! Please take a moment and save us the call by clicking below! 
 

Please, give generously and watch as God comes in unexpected ways!

👔 Blessing of the Seersucker Returns June 24th!
 
 
 
Our annual tradition returns on Sunday, June 24th after the 9:00am and 10:30am Masses on the lawn! Enjoy a Saint Miriam Seersucker Drink and wear your best attire! Join Saint Miriam as we continue an annual and ‘fun’ tradition where parishioners will be led out of the church and into the front garden for a service called, “Blessing of the Seersucker”! This brief service, with a uniquely Southern take on the “kirking” or blessing of the tartans, celebrated by Monsignor Jim’s former parish in Washington DC has made its way to Saint Miriam for some nine years now! While tartans may represent ancestral links with Britain, Saint Miriam makes seersucker representative its own clan, especially those who struggle through a hot summer! Help us welcome in summer, thank God for all we have, and for good weather and wonderful vacations by joining us on June 24th and enjoy a souther drink on the lawn with us, too! The first 12 folks who enter wearing something seersucker also take home a special gift so arrive early!Join us!

⻍ Join Us as We Welcome 50 Miles!
 
Leaders of the Pennridge 225 have partnered with March for Our Lives to bring you 50 Miles More, a protest march for gun reform from Senator Pat Toomey’s hometown in Lehigh Valley to Philadelphia, his Senate Office. The March will take place May 3-6! We have agreed to be a stop on the route for the walkers to rest, get refreshments and take a quick nap! There will also be an overnight lock in Thursday May 3rd at 8pm! Help us by volunteering by contacting us here! Learn more by Clicking Here!
 
 
 
💅🏼 Monsignor Jim has a Painted Fingernail?!
 
Our pastor has joined the movement to bring awareness to the plight of child abuse with A Polish Man! Monsignor “nailed it” by painting a nail Polished Man Blue until October 2nd, and asking you to start raising awareness and funds by being a Polished Man, too! This means you paint one fingernail and take a stand to protect the world’s most vulnerable; children. You don’t shy away from difficult conversations or turn your back on an uncomfortable issue. You step up as a leader, because violence is never acceptable. You lead by example and use your influence to raise funds and awareness to end violence against children for good.
 
The challenge to men (and women) to paint one fingernail Polished Man Blue represents the 1 child that dies every 5 minutes as a result of violence. That nail starts a conversation.
 
  • A conversation that inspires a donation.
  • A donation that allows for prevention and protection.
  • And it ends when no child suffers from violence.
  • Because it shouldn’t hurt to be a child.
  • Nail it to end it.
 

JOIN OUR PASTOR AND TOGETHER WE CAN END VIOLENCE AGAINST CHILDREN, FOR GOOD.

 
1 CHILD DIES EVERY 5 MINUTES AS A RESULT OF VIOLENCE. THAT’S 1 TOO MANY. JOIN US, AS A TEAM OR AS AN INDIVIDUAL, AND HELP END VIOLENCE AGAINST CHILDREN.

Stewardship Time Ends This Week!

(for Time, Talent and Treasure!)

 
Each Lent, Saint Miriam uses the season to reflect on God’s goodness and generosity towards us. Then, we look at what we give and how we honor that generosity. It is about being god stewards, but also about honoring and supporting all that we have at our beautiful parish! This year, we ask that you reflect on being a good Christian steward! 
 
The Christian steward is one who receives God’s gifts gratefully, cherishes and tends them in a responsible and accountable manner, shares them in justice and love with others, and returns them with increase to the Lord. When it comes to financial support of our church family, the biblical ideal is a tithe—or 10%—of one’s income.
 
Our Catholic Church leaders suggest giving 5% to church and 5% to charity.  Most Catholics who tithe reach this ideal gradually. In this area of stewardship, one of the most important steps to consider is to become an ‘intentional giver’ — as opposed to a ‘loose change giver.’  An intentional giver is one who has the willing diligence to ‘do the math,’ that is, to look at his/her annual income and then prayerfully and intentionally decide what percentageshould be set aside for the support of the church and for charity. We urge everyone to be intentional givers as well as to sign up for eGiving to ensure your weekly or monthly gift is received in a timely manner to help us help others!
 
 

Five reasons to be serious and generous with our financial resources:

 

  1. God expects us to be generous even if our financial resources are not much. Remember how Jesus praised the poor widow for her generosity to the Temple (Ref: Mark 12:41-44).
  2. We could have been born in a slum, begging for food every day. Reflection on this accident of our birth should motivate us to be generous with our material blessings.
  3. Consistent financial giving is the best medicine for our greedy tendencies.
  4. Generous financial giving helps to make us a little more like our good and generous God.
  5. It feels good to experience the joy of giving.
 
Our parish seeks to practice what we preach in this area of the Gospel. This past fiscal year, we gave $11,000 from our offertory collections to charities in our local area and abroad.
 
So, how are we doing, you ask?
 
To date, less than 41% of all parishioners have returned their pledges or completed the online Stewardship Forms. Of those that have, the average increase is a remarkable 18% INCREASE! And, we have also received 5 brand NEW pledges! We also converted 13 folks from check giving to eGiving! These are all wonderful rends, BUT we need EVERYONE to give to make this year work! So, please…complete the forms handed out this weekend or visit the online site TODAY. 
 
 

Please, give generously and watch as God comes in unexpected ways!

🚪 Stained Glass Doors To Be Installed for Easter!

This year’s major project is done and soon, as you enter for Holy Week, you will be greeted with the installation of our stained glass panels from our former parish building in Blue Bell into our main Sanctuary Doors! The doors have been removed since January 3rd to allow the contractor to install the beautiful panels and honor everyone who gave so generously! We waited until our 10th anniversary, coming up in March, and to allow for a stronger financial position! So, to help offset these costs, please give generously and join us this Holy Week for the unveiling! They are stunning and memorial and honor plaques are available! See anyone on staff!
