A key ingredient to the success of the Diocesan Stewardship Appeal is participation.  We hope that every family will consider a gift of time, talent and treasure.  In order to reach our goal we need to have every member participate.  Each family is asked to consider a gift of at least 10% over their yearly parish contribution in the form of a one-time gift or a pledge, payable over eight months to your parish or you may go online at www.gidiocese.org.  The annual Appeal funds one-third of the diocesan budget. Our ultimate goal is 100% participation.  Please discern your gifts of time, talent and treasure.  Don’t forget to bring your pledge! Thank you to those who have already made a gift.


Donations are always needed at the Food Pantry.  Suggestions for February are:  soup, peanut butter and jelly.  This is only a suggestion.  Donate as you like.   If you are needing something from the Elm Creek Food Pantry, please call Juanita Wenburg at 856-4724.  If no answer, please leave a number and she will return your call.
