End of Year Reminder!
We are quickly finishing up our year here at St. Helena’s.
 
Our parish has been incredibly faithful with pledges and your pledge payments are important this time of year as our activities and expenses increase during the Christmas season.

 Regarding your year-end contributions:
 
Checks that are mailed and postmarked in 2018 are deductible in 2018 even though not received until 2019.
 
A check deposited in the church offering in January 2019 cannot be deducted in 2018, even if it is backdated to 2018.
 
You may go online thru December 31st to pay your pledge.
 
Our church offices will be open regular hours for the rest of this week.
We are closed next week for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
We re-open Wednesday December 26th and Thursday 27th with regular hours closing at 4 p.m.daily.
After the new year, we will re-open on Wednesday January 3rd.
 For your convenience, there is a mail slot in the side door of the church office.
 
Feel free to call the office (830-249-3228) if you have any questions.
 
Wishing you a happy and blessed Christmas season!
