  • ALTAR SERVERS

    Please let us know when you'll be away this summer so
    we can schedule July and August accordingly. Send an
    email to leslie.grygar@stmarytempletx.org and
    ames.mason@stmarytempletx.org. Look for upcoming
    trainings for old and new servers!  You are qualified to
    be an altar server as long as you have completed First
    Communion.  And, fyi, you are never to old, either!


     

  • ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT


    Visit with Jesus for an hour on Wednesdays between 7:30am and 6:30pm.  Consider signing up for an hour each week.  What better way to begin the New Year!  Also, adoration is celebrated on the First Friday of each month at 7:00pm.  




    STEWARDSHIP

    The faithful are obliged to support the Church in her material needs.  As the pastor of St. Mary Catholic Church I ask you to prayerfully consider fulfilling your obligation by tithing 5% of your wages to your parish, 4% to personal charity(s) and 1% to the Diocese. 

    Approximate Household Income Weekly Sacrifice to the Parish
    Per Hour Per Year
    $7.50 $15,000
    $15.00 $30,000
    $25.00 $50,000
    $35.00 $70,000
    5% 7.5% 10%
    $15.00 $22.50 $30.00
    $30.00 $45.00 $60.00
    $50.00 $75.00 $100.00
    $70.00 $105.00 $140.00

    May we always listen carefully to the voice of the Lord and set our heart on what will last forever.  We only fool ourselves if we believe that our possessions will bring us happiness and life.  Instead, “grow rich in the sight of the Lord” and let’s work together to build an Amazing Parish.

    Fr. Steve
