A special message from Mrs. Rhodes: A new tool has been made available in memory of Mr. David Reihl, who continually made a difference for us with his generous giving of time, talent and treasure. I always advocate looking for ways to not incur more family expense. So now the question really becomes, "how can I maintain current giving levels and still increase giving?" That sounds like a trick question, but it is not. Please remember that donations start with us, but increases don't have to fall completely on the parishioners. Many employers offer company match for charitable donations. If you would like to learn more, please contact your employer's human resource department. They can guide you through the process.
