New Year's Resolutions

Lesle KU 2Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends and engaging in family traditions together.

A new year brings new opportunities. I welcome you to join me in these spiritual new year's resolutions:

1) Make good stewardship a lifestyle by managing your time, talent, and treasure and attend the Region IX Stewardship Conference April 10, 2019 in Wichita.
ICSC 2019

2) Share your Catholic faith with others by being joyful in your walk with Christ and pray for a successful Convocation, Enflame Our Hearts, in October 2019.

3) Pray the rosary by inviting others to pray with you, teaching others how to pray it, or encouraging those who don't, and especially pray for spirituality uplifting pilgrimage to the Holy Land October 18-28 2019 led by Archbishop Naumann. Pricing is available this month, and we are still accepting wait list reservations. For more information and to reserve your spot, click here.

CFNEK: Donor Advised Funds

Charitable donations may be more complicated under the new tax law. Many CPAs and tax attorneys recommend a strategy of 'bundling' deductible gifts into alternate years. One way to bundle charitable gifts, according to your Catholic values, is through a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) with the Catholic Foundation of Northeast Kansas. For more information, click here, or call 913-647-3062
