Holy Spirit Parish at Geist

From the Desk of Fr. Dan

Every other year the Diocese holds our Fruitful Harvest Campaign

What a blessing it is to the parishes as it allows 100% of the weekly collections to remain in the parish, yes, our diocese is one, if not the only diocese in the country without a “tax” on offertory collections.  There are also overage funds that are returned to the parish. Last month we received a check for just over $71,000.00.  This money was put into our charity account and will be given to different charities as needs arise.

As I am sure you are aware Fruitful Harvest  supports all the diocesan offices such as Catechesis, Schools, the Marriage Tribunal, Communications (including the Catholic Moment), Family Life, Worship and the RCIA, the Vocations Office and the Bishop’s    Office. 

In light of this I want to encourage all parishioners to consider making a pledge to this important campaign.

This year there will be several changes in the way Fruitful Harvest is handled. 

You will be receiving your pledge cards in the mail. If you have not already received your card, you will very soon.  On the weekend of October 6/7 we are asking everyone to bring their  completed 2018 Fruitful Harvest pledge card to Church where they will be collected. We will have extra cards at the church. And should you need, you can mail your pledge by using the envelope you will receive in the mail, or your pledge card can be brought to Holy Spirit at any time. Our goal this year is about the same as two years ago, $689,000.00. 

Please help us to reach our goal and support the good work being done in our diocese. 

Thank you!

In Christ,

Fr. Dan


HELP FR. DAN GARTLAND WIN!!!

Fr. Dan has once again agreed to prepare a dinner for 8-10  people as an item for the Silent Auction at the upcoming CATHOLIC RADIO Annual Dinner. It will be a fabulous meal. Several other area priests have agreed to do the same.  We’d like to see Fr. Dan’s dinner raise more funds for Catholic Radio than the other priests. You can help by attending the Catholic Radio Dinner. T

The Dinner is Tuesday, October 2nd at the North Side Knights of Columbus Hall in Indianapolis

. For tickets or more details, visit www.CatholicRadioIndy.org or call 317-870-8400.

GO FR. DAN… BON APPETITE!
