Let us become a debt free parish!

This year’s assessment for APA 2016 is $111,721.
440 families have pledged at this time.
Will you please join us in this endeavor and lighten the weight from the shoulders of our fellow parishioners?

 

Have you forgotten something?  Have you seen the APA updates?  Are you watching how we are progressing?  Good news and bad news.  There has been more participation in the APA as in previous years.  Bad news is that only 440 of our parishioners have “opened the door to mercy” for this year’s Annual Pastoral Appeal.

Remember the words I shared, $1 a week, $52 a year,  will make a HUGE difference in making our Parish debt free.

Sincere thanks to those who have participated.  We can’t do anything without your help.

Please remember to write #150 OLQP on your check.  Feel free to place your offering in the collection.  We’ll send it to the Diocese for you!

¿Has olvidado algo?  ¿Has visto las actualidades al día del APA?  ¿Estás viendo como estamos progresando?  Buenas noticias y malas noticias.  Ha habido más participación en el APA como en años anteriores.  La mala noticia es que solo 432 de 1492 han “abierto la puerta a la misericordia” para la campaña Pastoral Anual de este año.

Recuerde las palabras yo comparto, $1 a la semana, $52 al año, hará una gran diferencia en hacer nuestra parroquia salda de deudas.

Sinceras gracias a los que han participado.  No podemos hacer nada sin su ayuda.

Por favor recuerden de escribir el número #150 en su cheque.  Siéntase libre en colocar su ofrenda en la colecta.  ¡Se la entregaremos a la diócesis por usted!

Que Dios los bendiga.

Message from our Pastor

Where are we with our Annual Pastoral Appeal 2016?

Dear Sisters and Brothers,
We receive questions from many of you to know exactly where we stand on our Annual Pastoral Appeal. Thank you for your questions. Please see the details below. We are so proud to say, unlike from past years, we are one of the top 36 parishes in the dioceses in our contributions towards APA. A little more effort, we can pay off completely this year; a new tradition, of which we can be proud of.

Our Total Annual Pastoral Appeal goal for 2016 is:  $111,721.00

We have pledged to date: $87,836.65

We paid so far: $70,693.90

Remainder owed on Pledges: $17,142.75

Balance of Assessment Due: (111,721.00-70,693.90)= $23,884.35

Total due for APA 2016: (17,142.75+ 23,884.35) = $41,027.10

Now the next important question is; ‘did all the parishioners contribute towards the APA? Sorry to say the answer is a big ‘NO’. Out of 1200 families as our record shows only 440 families participated.

I earnestly request everyone’s full participation. I know how hard and difficult it is for many. But if we fail to pay off, we are again adding to our debt. So those who haven’t yet paid anything towards APA, please do it in these coming months. (Our amount due today is: $41,027.10).

Tithing is a responsibility; those who have the ability should make their best effort. Every family has to sacrifice; always trust in God, your sacrifice will never out-do the generosity of God.

We read in the Bible: “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,” says the Lord Almighty. “Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land,” says the Lord Almighty.”  ( Malachi 3, 10-12.)

Your tithing is the income of our parish.  I am always grateful for your sacrifice, your love for Our Lady Queen of Peace shines through in all that you do. Together we have achieved a lot.  Don’t give up; again together we can make Our Lady Queen of Peace a debt free parish.


May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father and communion of the Holy Spirit be with you always.

Father Sebastian


Queridas hermanas y hermanos en Jesucristo,

Hemos recibido preguntas de muchos de ustedes para saber exactamente donde estamos parados en nuestra Campaña Anual Pastoral.  Gracias por sus preguntas.  Por favor vea los detalles abajo.  Estamos muy orgullosos de decir, a diferencia de años anteriores, que somos una de las primeras 36 parroquias en la diócesis en nuestra contribución al APA.  Con un poco más de esfuerzo, podemos pagar completamente este año; una nueva tradición, de la cual podemos estar orgullosos.   

Nuestro objetivo total de la Campaña Anual Pastoral para el 2016 es: $111,721.00

Tenemos donaciones comprometida hasta la fecha de: $87,836.65

Se ha pagado al día: $70,693.00

El restante en compromisos: $17,142.75

Balance de la deuda de la tasación: (111,721.00 – 70,693.90) = $23,884.35

La deuda total para el 2016 del APA: (17,142.75 + 23,884.35) = $41,027.10

Ahora la próxima pregunta siguiente es: ¿‘todos los feligreses contribuyeron hacia el APA?  Siento decir que la respuesta es un gran ‘NO’.  De 1200 familias como se muestra en el registro solo 440 familias participaron.

Encarecidamente solicito plena participación de todos.  Sé lo duro y difícil que es para muchos.  Pero si fracasamos en pagarla, otra vez estamos aumentando a nuestra deuda.  Así, que aquellos que aún no han contribuido nada al APA, por favor háganlo en estos próximos meses.  (Nuestra deuda hasta hoy es $41,027.10).

El diezmo es una responsabilidad; aquellos que tienen la capacidad deben hacer su mejor esfuerzo.  Cada familia tiene que sacrificar; hay que siempre confiar en Dios, su sacrificio nunca superará la generosidad de Dios.

Leemos en la Biblia: “Traigan su diezmo al tesoro del templo, y así habrá alimentos en  mi casa. Pónganme a prueba en eso, a ver si no les abro las ventanas del cielo para vaciar sobre ustedes la más rica bendición.  No dejaré que las plagas destruyan sus cosechas y sus viñedos.  Todas las naciones les llamarán dichosos, porque ustedes tendrán un país encantador.” Yo, el Señor todopoderoso, lo he dicho. (Malaquías 3, 10-12.)

El diezmo es el ingreso de nuestra parroquia.  Estoy siempre agradecido por su sacrificio, su amor para Nuestra Señora Reina de La Paz que brilla a través de todo lo que hacen.  Juntos hemos logrado mucho.  No se rindan; otra vez juntos podemos hacer Nuestra Señora Reina de la Paz libre de deuda.

Que la gracia de Nuestro Señor Jesucristo, el amor de Dios Padre y la Comunión del  Espíritu Santo este siempre con vosotros.

Que Dios los bendiga,

Padre Sebastián

A Welcome Message from our Pastor, Father Sebastian

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Jesus Christ, 

We warmly welcome all of you to the first Catholic church in West Pasco County. Together with “Our Blessed Mother” we gather at the Table of her Son, Jesus to get nourished and to proclaim His message of love in words and deeds.

We invite you to be a part of our loving Community being present at our Eucharistic celebrations and other events. Every First Friday at 5.00 p.m. is our Family Dinner Time in the Parish Hall. We gather to know one another and to build up new friendships. This year we started the St. Lorenzo 5 Star Breakfast Buffet.  Dates are published in the bulletin.  You must try it as it is the "best in town".

Please visit this magnificent Church adorned with colorful stained glass entrance doors, windows, Carillon Tower, Stations of the Cross and the Doves of Peace; stay here in solitude to get blessings upon you and your family through the intercession of Our Blessed Mother.

We look forward to seeing you!  May God bless you.
