From the Senior Warden - March 2015
Greetings from the Sr. Warden and your Vestry during this very special Holy Season of Lent;
     At our recent Vestry meeting, we talked at length about the challenges we face at St. Boniface, and I’m sure many of you share the same concerns.  One of our main responsibilities as your Vestry is to make sure the church operates under a balanced budget.  The task of cutting expenses while asking for greater financial support from the congregation seems rather straight forward. As you might guess, it is not.  The losing of valued staff members and the reduction of programs affects people we love, and what we have come to expect at our church.  Please believe this is no easy task for any of us, and we pray for those that are affected.
     We have asked each of you to examine your giving to St. Boniface Church, and, if in your heart, you feel you can manage to increase your support, we may be able to lessen the planned reductions.  Many of us have kept our pledge relatively consistent over the past years.  I know I did.  But this year I doubled my pledge for two reasons.  First, I believe I can do so by making only small sacrifices along the way.  Second, God and the people of St. Boniface have changed my life over the past 10 years.  I look forward to worship events and to share fellowship with each one of you.  I don’t want that to ever change.  When we get together at St. Boniface and sharing the peace and love that Christ has brought to us, I know God is happy with us.
     The Vestry thanks each of you for all you do at St. Boniface Church, and we strive to be the leadership team you deserve.
     May God bless each one of you, and I pray that the Holy Spirit be with us as we discern how we can best serve our community through Him.     Doug Francis
