2017 offertory envelopes

Are You Looking for Your Offertory Envelopes for 2017? In past years, in order to save on postage, in December we have put all the new year’s offertory envelopes on tables in the vestibule for you to pick up when you come to Mass. But as you may have noticed, quite a number of people never picked up their envelopes, either because they had moved out of the parish or because they preferred not to have them anymore. So this year they will be mailed to you every month. This is an option that we think will ultimately save us money. First of all, it is not that expensive. Secondly, we will learn if the person is no longer in the parish or no longer wishes to receive envelopes. This will enable us to keep from ordering more envelopes than are needed and to maintain a more accurate list of active parishioners and so save us on other mailings.
