Let Your Soul Shine

best advent everThis Advent, please join Father Paul and your fellow parishioners for Dynamic Catholic’s BEST ADVENT EVER: LET YOUR SOUL SHINE. Every day during Advent, you’ll receive an email with a short video from Matthew Kelly and the Dynamic Catholic team. It’s completely free and easy to sign up, just click here.

giving tuesAs Catholics we are called to receive God’s gifts gratefully and share them lovingly with one another. December 1st we will join in the celebration of Giving Tuesday, a global day of kindness and generosity. In this time of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that can give us hope – that together we can do extraordinary things.

You can show your generosity in a variety of ways during Giving Tuesday—whether it’s donating funds, participating in a new ministry, volunteering, or praying, every act of generosity and kindness counts!

Join as we gather together to raise funds to support our parish, school, ministries, and share our faith on Giving Tuesday! Our income is down about 25% year over year. Please consider making a special donation.  Here is great news: there is NO assessment by the Diocese on any money collected for giving Tuesday.

There are two ways to make a contribution.

GO ONLINE — Visit this link to make a donation on line: click here.

Use an envelope found in one of the pews, write a check to Saint Francis de Sales with “Giving Tuesday” written on the memo line.  You may place in a collection basket, drop it off at the rectory or office, or mail it in to:  Giving Tuesday, 626 S. Oakwood Ave., Beckley, WV. 25801
