St. Philip’s will be hosting one of the seven Diocese of West Texas convocational conversations on apportionment, shared ministry, and the diocesan budget on Thursday, March 5th, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Appetizers will be provided. This gathering is designed for active clergy, wardens, treasurers, and Council delegates, but the meeting is open to anyone interested in the history of diocesan apportionment, within the context of stewardship and mission. Our apportionment for 2020 is $58,000. The apportionment is a percentage (based on average Sunday attendance) of the average of the previous three years general income.
If you are interested in joining Bishop Reed and other diocesan leaders for this conversation, please RSVP to Julie in the church office (830) 278-5223 so she can register us with the diocese and the cooks can plan for refreshments. – Fr. Mike +
