As you know, bold steps have been taken to protect public health, including the unprecedented decision to cancel masses through Easter. While this is the right thing to do, it means that our offertory – the major source of income for parish operations – will be negatively impacted.
We’re encouraging all parishioners to consider online giving to keep St Brendans strong during this crisis. You can give securely either through a credit card or bank account and our staff is very willing to walk you through the process.
Click the “Online Giving” button above or this special direct link to the giving form at www.tinyurl.com/stbvoyagers. You can also call the parish office at 614.876.1272 and we can handle it for you. Thank you for continuing to support the parish financially during this crisis.
A Message From Our Pastor
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As our voyage of faith at Saint Brendan the Navigator continues we are excited by the good things that God is doing for us. All these things point to our hope, our dream, and our purpose: to be a community of Catholic Christians that embraces people where they are on their voyage of faith. This is reflected in our mission statement:
To meet people where they are on their voyage of faith and offer them opportunities to know, share, and live their faith.
On this voyage, we want to give parishioners vibrant, reverent liturgies that provide families with the spiritual nourishment that every person needs; to create a space in which to worship Almighty God, receive Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist and then go out to evangelize and minister His life and love to the world.
With your prayerful support and help we believe it is possible to live the three theological virtues:
- Faith that enables us to know God and all He has revealed through His Church.
- Hope, the virtue that compels us to desire God above all else.
- Charity that seeks to serve others with the same love that God loves us.
In all of this, we are voyagers who seek to be good disciples and stewards of the gifts we have received. Our stewardship program looks to every family or household to give generously so that together we build up our parish family. As voyagers, we work together to build the Kingdom of God by providing a place where faith is nurtured, shared and lived. This happens through spiritual enrichment, social outreach and by supporting the infrastructure that makes all of this possible: our church, school, and parish staff.
Thank you for joining us on our voyage. May St Brendan the Navigator pray for you,
and God bless you!
