2018 CATHOLIC CHARITIES APPEAL
Archbishop Chaput has written to you regarding the 2018 Catholic Charities Appeal. Envelopes and pledge cards are in the pews. Brochures with information on the Archdiocesan activities funded by the Appeal can be found at the doors. Please mail your pledge card with your sacrificial gift in your envelope or place it in the collection basket. Make your check payable to “Catholic Charities Appeal.” Visit the website: catholiccharitiesappeal.org.
Everyone who lives within our parish boundaries should be registered here. If you are not currently receiving envelopes, you are not registered; please call the Rectory in the morning to be sure you are registered. We are aware that some are coming to Mass here who live outside our parish boundaries. If you wish to, you can now be registered here. Please call the Rectory in the morning or see Father Ames after Mass.
VOCAL TALENT NEEDED
Good music and singing enhance a Liturgy. They promote the experience of prayer and worship. The choir needs more male and female voices. There is a need for more cantors (leaders of song) at Mass. Instruction and training will be provided. Please contact Harry Solomon: 610-642-0545.
SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN BECOMING A CATHOLIC?
You or someone you know (spouse, family member, friend) may be considering becoming a member of the Catholic Church. Perhaps you are not sure, have questions about the process and would like some information. A group will be forming. If you know someone who might be interested, please have them contact the rectory. It will be an exciting journey. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the rectory: 610-642-0545.
REMEMBER SAINT COLMAN ON VACATION
Going on vacation? Please remember your parish in your prayers and in the offertory collection. Use Online Giving (additional information below) to make your offertory contributions. Your spiritual and financial support during the summer months helps sustain our parish. Enjoy a happy and safe vacation.
Online giving is available at St. Colman. It is quick, easy, and safe: simply click on the Online Giving logo on our home page and you will be taken to the site provided for our parish by Our Sunday Visitor. You can either register an account so you can donate more than once, or you can use Quick Give, which is for a one-time donation. All of your information is stored off-site in a secure area: the parish staff does not have access to your bank account information or your credit card information. We receive notice of your donation that evening, and it is credited to you as it would be if you placed money in our collection basket. Please call (610-642-0545 on weekday mornings) or email (email@example.com) the Rectory if you have questions or need help getting started.
