Can you help make friendly phone calls?

     

We are both dedicated and excited at the opportunity to make sure that each parishioner at St. Anastasia knows about the chance to get their picture in our Pictorial Directory!  This directory will be a historical issue – a celebration of 50 years as a parish in the Troy community and we don’t want any one to miss it!  For their participation, they will receive one FREE 8 x 10 color portrait and one FREE directory (the directory will not available for purchase – in order to receive one you must participate).

Many hearts and hands are needed to make phone calls from our parish offices inviting fellow parishioners to participate and schedule their family’s photography session.  (Script provided!) Minimal computer skills are helpful, and we will show you the rest!  Click here to see time slots available.

Because the offices close at 5 pm during the summer (and earlier Fridays and Saturdays) we REALLY need those of you who are available during the day!   Please sign up for one or more shifts! Also, you are invited to share this link with others that may be able to lend a hand.   The timelines given are estimated times.  If you need special times or have any questions, please contact Brenda Kozlowski, Parish Life @ gro.a1503032457isats1503032457anats1503032457@iksw1503032457olzoK1503032457B1503032457 or call 248-689-8380 ext 103.

Why donate?

Why should I consider giving to CSA ?

Our gifts to the CSA put these themes into action. St. Teresa of Avila reminds us, Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours … Together, we, as the Body of Christ, every day, in some way through our support of CSA-funded ministries, programs, and services, impact the lives of thousands in southeast Michigan and beyond. We bring Christ’s mercy and love into their lives, and by our showing that love, send a powerful evangelization message for all to witness.

All of us, personally and through our parishes, enjoy the fruits of the work of the archdiocesan Central Services departments and offices seeking to carry out the mission of the Archdiocese of sharing Christ in and through the Church. When we use God’s blessings to pledge our annual gift to the CSA, we join with our sisters and brothers in Christ throughout the Archdiocese to do the Lord’s work — work that no one individual or parish could possibly do alone.

If you have any questions regarding your CSA contribution, please call Brian Burgin at 248-689-8380 x 130.

NEW THIS YEAR:  For your convenience, you may submit your pledge and payment information directly to the Archdiocese by going to the online portal.  Otherwise, you can submit your pledge information using the form on the reverse-side of the letter from Fr. Steve – OR download this CSA 2017 Pledge Form to print and mail.

May God bless you for your generosity.
