Our Giving Tree

PARISH GIVING TREE

Greetings of Peace,

Christmas is here again and the parish’s Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SVdP) wants this year’s celebration to be a truly meaningful and wonderful event for all. As we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ let us be reminded of those in need. We hope you will join us in celebrating Christmas in a priceless and gratifying way. We wish to distribute gifts to the needy within our parish.

A St. Genevieve – St. Maurice Parish Giving Tree has been set up. Our Christmas Giving Tree is up early so that we can gather gifts for those in need this season. Choose an ornament, buy a gift, and bring back the gift unwrapped with the tag attached. The Giving Tree also contains tags for gift cards – purchase a gift card in any amount or consider making a financial donation. Your gift will make Christmas a blessing to families within our parish. Thank you for lending a hand to a family in need this Christmas season!

The gifts must be returned by the weekend of December 16/17 to the boxes surrounding the Giving Tree. The parish’s Society of Saint Vincent de Paul will collect and distribute the gift to the families.

With many thanks,

Manny Miruzzi, President SVdP

CSA 2017

Catholic Services Appeal 2017

Please continue to send in your pledge or offering for the 2017 CSA campaign. You can send in your pledge by putting it in the offertory basket or mailing it to the parish office

You can also make your pledge online through the Archdiocese of Detroit .

Go to: stgstm.aodcsa.org

You will be able to create an account to set up a pledge or use Quick Give to make a donation without setting up an account.

Your gift is greatly appreciated.


PLEDGE YOUR GIFT TO THE CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL

St. GenevieveSt. Maurice Parish Target $54,877

The Catholic Services Appeal is a pledge program. While cash gifts are accepted and welcomed, pledging a gift will allow you to make a more generous — and affordable — contribution to the CSA, since you can spread out your gift over several months.

If you desire, you may make an initial payment when you fill out your pledge card, then pay the remaining balance with nine additional monthly payments.

GIFT OPPORTUNITIES USING THE 10-PAYMENT PLAN

ELECTRONIC GIVING

Electronic giving helps the Archdiocese of Detroit answer our Holy Father’s call in Laudato Si to care for “our common home.” Online payments at www.aod.org/csa allow the CSA Office to save on postage as well as an incredible amount of paper, because they eliminate the need for monthly mailings. With thousands of generous donors contributing to the CSA each year, this is a considerable environmental savings, and is more efficient as well.

Go to: stgstm.aodcsa.org

You may also pay your pledge electronically without using the online giving portal. Simply indicate on your pledge card that you prefer payments be withdrawn from your bank account or charged to a credit card after the optional initial payment.
