Administrator’s Corner

Pastoral Services Appeal

Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time, February 19, 2017
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I hope that your Christmas celebration was blessed and that you have started off a great New Year with God’s abundant blessings. Our last year PSA assessment was $128,000. We pledged $220,690 and contributed $212,791. Wow! I am so amazed and wholeheartedly grateful to each and every one of you for your prayer, love and generosity. The 100% rebate amount of $85,791 has been designated to the Restricted Parish Capital Building Fund for Overall Campus Master Plan and for Facility Maintenance.

The assigned 2017 PSA goal for St. Cecilia Church is $128,000. This same amount of the last year, along with the goals of other Parishes and Centers in the Diocese of Orange will be used to carry out the mission of the Church by supporting eleven pastoral ministries and services including: Catholic School Scholarships to increase the availability of Catholic education for all families; vital Education and Formation for Priests, Deacons and Seminarians; Catholic Charities, which provides assistance to the poor and vulnerable; and Detention Ministry Outreach, which extends mercy toward the imprisoned by sharing the Gospel with them.

You are asked to prayerfully discern the amount of your 2017 PSA gift. Your sacrificial gift in any amount will be acknowledged as your commitment to our faith and your response to God’s many blessings. Once we have met our goal, 100% of all PSA donations over our Diocesan goal will be returned to St. Cecilia Church in a monthly rebate.

As you have seen, the modular buildings were removed after last Easter. We will turn this empty area into the gathering place after Mass. We will have two buildings planned for the open area north of the Church between the Church and houses. One portion is a 2-story building for meeting rooms and music practice. This building will include moveable walls to create different meeting room spaces as needed. It will also have restrooms on both floors and an elevator. Last December 12, the Diocese approved the entire building project and we are clear to submit it to the City of Tustin for Planning Review and Approval. Our 100% rebate amount will continue to be designated to the Restricted Parish Capital Building Fund for an Overall Campus Master Plan and for Facility Maintenance.

Together with Fr. Agustin and Fr. Wayne, I am deeply grateful to you for your devoted support of immeasurable generosity, constant prayer and Christ-like love for our St. Cecilia community. With the intercessions of Our Lady of Fatima (her 100th Anniversary of Apparitions the Church celebrates this year) and Our Patroness St. Cecilia, may Almighty God reward and bless you and your family abundantly through Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savor!

With Gratitude in Christ,
Rev. Bao Thai
Administrator

2016-Year-End-Giving-Gift to St. Cecilia

Please consider your 2016 Year End Giving Gift to support St. Cecilia Parish Capital Building Fund. Please use the parish vanilla envelope designated for Building Fund, and write your parish ID envelope number on it. If you do not have it yet, please write your full name, address and phone number, and we create and inform you of your parish ID envelope number. In addition, you may consider donating your 2016 Year End Giving Gift to St. Cecilia. We are deeply grateful to you for the generosity and loving amount you have contributed throughout the year and in particular you 2016 Year End Giving Gift. Please be assured that we will send our tax deductible letter to you toward the end of January 2017. Please contact Fr. Bao at 714-544-3250, Ext. 14, or Mr. Jim Marshall, Business Manager, at Ext. 12. Thank you so very much! May God bless you abundantly!


Pink & Vanilla Envelopes

Christian Service’s monthly Pink Envelope has been replaced by the monthly Vanilla Envelope of St. Cecilia Parish Capital Building Fund. At present, the total amount in the Christian Service account can run basically throughout the period of two fully fiscal years of 2016-2018. Since we are now in need to raise funds for our new one-story Administrative Office and new two-story Parish Center, Fr. Bao presented the replacement of two envelopes with the Christian Service’s leader, Peter Ruiz, and with the Parish Finance Council. We all have come to conclude to do so for the two year period. Meanwhile, we are thankful to you for your generosity of any extra amount that you would like to contribute directly to the restricted Christian Service Fund.
