A MESSAGE FROM THE TREASURER
The 2022 Stewardship Giving Campaign has been mailed. Please look it over carefully and be generous with your 2022 pledge response. In the meantime, are you wondering where you stand on fulfilling your 2021 Pledge? Contact me and I will be happy to send you an updated Giving Statement for 2021. As we approach the end of the year, it is most important that we receive all promised pledges so that we can continue with God’s work in the church and in the world.
If you have not received a Stewardship packet from the Giving Committee, please contact the church office at 703-759-2082 or email@example.com and one will be forwarded to you. We ask that you peruse the information carefully and prayerfully consider the amount of your personal pledge to St. Francis in 2022.
Please return your pledge form in the self-addressed envelope that has been provided and mail it or drop it off to the church.
