Sanctuary Lamp and weekend offertory gifts of bread and wine, in memory of a loved one
We have initiated a new way to pray for and remember of loved ones by sponsoring the Sanctuary Lamp and weekend offertory gifts of bread and wine, in memory of a loved one. The seven day candle will burn for a week, at the tabernacle, with your special intention or in memory of your loved one, as you have requested. The special intention and or your loved ones will be honored and remembered with the prayers of our parish at the offertory as they are presented and used at the weekend Masses. This is a nice way to remember birthdays, anniversaries and to offer special prayers and intentions for our loved ones. The suggested offering or donation of $10.00 is accepted for the for the Sanctuary Lamp and $20.00 for the week-end offertory gifts can be booked at the rectory.

Remembering St Brendan's and St Ann's in your will
Many people have given bequests over the years to our parish collaborative and we are grateful for their generosity. Gifts and bequests are a line item in our parish budgets and as the fiscal year comes to a close some have inquired about the logistics of giving a large or small gift as part of your estate planning. If you would like more information about how this can be done in loving memory of anyone in your life please contact our finance manager Nancy Lafoe or any member of our finance councils. May the Lord continue to inspire us to be cheerful givers.
