As we begin to head towards the end of the year, anyone wishing to claim his or her contributions to our church as an Income Tax deduction—and have it confirmed in Writing by us—MUST BE REGISTERED PARISHONERS. We cannot provide a statement of contributions for 2016 income tax purposes to anyone who is not registered and not using your weekly envelops. We cannot issue any letters in connection with sponsorship for Sacraments or give recommendations for, positions, schools, etc. We would, therefore, kindly ask all new parishioners and those current parishioners not registered with our church to stop by the rectory office and register their families at your earliest convenience. It is extremely important that you register.
