Tax Aide Preparation
The AARP Foundation sponsors the Tax-Aide program. The mission is to prepare accurate tax returns for low to moderate income taxpayers, with special attention to those 50+.
Trained Tax Counselors prepare taxes in Cecil County:
Elkton United Methodist Church – every Monday
Cecilton Presbyterian Church– alternating Thursdays
Chesapeake City Franklin Hall – alternating Thursdays
Elkton Library – several Saturdays
To schedule an appointment, call Tax-Aide at 443-485-1153 starting January 21st.
Our parish is in dire need of Sacristans.
Sacristans open up our church for Mass and other services, set up the necessary items for use for the Mass, stand ready to assist the priest as needed and lock the church afterwards. Experienced Sacristans can train you and provide assistance to you as you learn.
Our parish needs you to consider coming forward to become a Sacristan.
Please contact the parish office if you are interested and want to learn more. Thank you.
Food Pantry Collection
Each Sunday we collect, unopened, non perishable food items to support two local food pantries, Faith in Action – Earleville and Asbury Methodist – Millington who supply food to our most vulnerable neighbors. Please place your can goods, cereals, pasta, canned fish and meat, soups, can veggies / fruit, peanut butter, jelly (please no glass jars), etc. into the receptacles at the church entrances. We CAN make a difference… One Can at a Time! Thank you for your continued generosity.
eGiving with Faith Direct
This month we are introducing a new and exciting way for you to support our parish offertory and second collections: Faith Direct enables parishioners to make your Church contribution through either direct debit from your checking/savings account or through your credit/debit card. No more writing checks or searching for envelopes on the way out the door. Now you can apply the convenience of direct debit to your parish offerings in much the same way you as your may now use it to make your mortgage, car or tuition payments.
Please join me in enrolling by the responding the mailing you will receive or visit www.faithdirect.net to enroll securely online. Our parish code is MD916
