GIVING OPPORTUNITIES

RETIREMENT FUND FOR RELIGIOUS
Senior sisters, brothers, and religious order priests have devoted their lives to prayer, service, and works of mercy. Most ministered for little or no pay. Today, their religious communities do not have enough retirement savings. Your gift to today’s Retirement Fund for Religious collection helps to furnish medications, nursing care, and other necessities.
 
RECYCLING AND FOOD COLLECTION: Next Collection December 17. On the third Saturday of every month from 9am-10am. You are invited to drive through St. Jude’s parking lot as many third Saturdays of every month as you can to drop off a bag(s) of food AND your aluminum cans and plastic drink bottles with a CRV separated into bags for recycling. If possible, crushing the bottles and cans ahead of time is very helpful.  Recycling Just as Jesus multiplied the 5 loaves and 2 fishes to feed 5000, help our Loaves and Fishes Recycling team to multiply CRV bottles and cans into projects that benefit our local homeless population.  Click here for more information
 
SANDWICH MINISTRY: Next meeting is December 12. Join us once a month to pack 250 bag lunches for those in poverty at Harbor House and senior residents at Many Mansions in Thousand Oaks.  It's fun and a great way to give back to the community.  We meet on a designated Monday each month at 9:30 am in the parish hall. Community Service Hours available. For more information, please call Judy Hutchison (818)402-8403 or email [email protected]  Click here to view the full schedule.

DEDICATED POINSETTIAS Parishioner-donated and dedicated poinsettias always enhance our Christmas environment in a very special and meaningful way. If you’d like to make a dedication, labels will be available for your use at the donation site. Or labels may be created at home before bringing your plant to the church, but please be sure to confine it to a size that will fit on the pot cover. In order to maintain a somewhat coordinated look in the church, we ask that the poinsettias be of the 6” pot size, which are widely available at grocery stores and the like. We will begin accepting poinsettia donations on Saturday, December 17th from 9 am to 5 pm by asking that they be brought to the tables set up on the hall stage. They may also be brought up until Christmas Eve. We thank you in advance for your continuing generosity and wish you a blessed Christmas. Contact Terry Groel (805) 495-7419.

ARCHDIOCESE GIVING CAMPAIGNS

TOGETHER IN MISSION This year, we celebrate our unity during the Together in Mission 2022 "As One We Believe" Annual Appeal and unite as a family of faith to raise vital funds for struggling parishes and schools during our 250th Year Jubliee of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Your tremendous generosity will continue to provide essential resources that enrich parish life, strengthen families and communities, and inspire and educate future generations at 64 parishes and 75 schools. Thank you for your support as we gather together during the "As One We Believe" Annual Appeal. Give today: https://togetherinmission.org/

CALLED TO RENEW The primary goals of the campaign are to help parishes fulfill their mission to serve others and to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Fifty percent of every dollar raised at each parish will be returned to the parish for its own needs. Once the goal is reached, the parish will receive 100% of each dollar collected above goal. This is a tremendous opportunity for parishes to expand and strengthen their ministries and programs. Parishes will also receive additional funds for their respective deferred maintenance needs. For more information or to make a donation please visit https://calledtorenew.org/parishes/st-jude-the-apostle-westlake-village/
