STEWARDSHIP and GIVING AT ST. BONIFACE
All we have is God's gift. How will we use it to further His Kingdom?

Prepare the Way Logo
John the BaptistWe set out to Prepare the Way in late July, preparing both our hearts and our household for the arrival of our new priest-in-charge later this fall.  And … you did it!!  We wrapped up this effort on the last Sunday in August: 180 parish households responded with $92,000, exceeding our goal!  Your gifts filled the budget gap, to present our priest-in-charge with a balanced parish budget.

IRAs as CHARITABLE GIFTS?

If you are 70 ½ or older and facing Required Minimum Distributions from your IRA, you may benefit from Congress's reinstated tax provision – the so-called IRA charitable rollover.  This provision allows eligible individuals to transfer up to $100,000 directly from an IRA to one or more qualified charitable organizations (such as St. Boniface!). The IRA withdrawal counts toward your RMD, but is not considered taxable income nor a tax deduction.  Consult your financial advisors to determine whether this giving option is appropriate for you. Contact your IRA administrator for appropriate forms.

Celebrating a Life, Celebrating a Legacy
With thanksgiving, the Vestry recently received the bequest of Winafred Schoeffler.  She and her husband, Dwight, joined St. Boniface in the late 1990s.  Immediately, Winafred jumped into parish life, participating in the Women’s Book Group, Círculo Español, Episcopal Church Women, Foyers, Sunday’s Bible Study, and Education for Ministry.  Traveling on our mission trip to the Dominican Republic and volunteering with Family Promise were two of the ways she shared her concern for others.  Reaching out to the newcomer, fellowship and bridge were among her passions, and she combined them by creating the Bridge Group, which brought together parishioners as well as community members for afternoons of friendly competition on the church campus.  The common thread through Winafred’s active life here was her love of St. Boniface -- its ministries and its people.  Because of her planned generosity, the ministries and fellowship that were so important to Winafred will continue to thrive, welcoming newcomers and enveloping them in our parish life, just as she and Dwight once were.
