Dear Friend of St. Joseph By the Sea,
We pause to praise God with much gratitude for His bountiful blessings to us at St. Joseph By the Sea! We want you to know that you are counted among our blessings. You and your loved ones are remembered in our daily prayers.
St. Joseph By the Sea offers a peaceful space for all who come inside to rest awhile in order to return home with needed energy to bring God’s love and peace to those with whom they minister.
At this time of so much unrest in our country and in our world, where everyone is struggling to “stay afloat”, we come to you again to ask if it is possible for you to help us in our efforts to continue our ministry here at St. Joseph By the Sea.
In our Appeal of 2009, we raised $5,000 which enabled us to purchase a new rug that covers the entrance and the dining room. We are grateful for all of your gifts to us in the past as well as in the present.
This year we begin our 2010 Appeal with a Wish List that includes a new heating unit, three new shower stalls that are easily accessible, new mattresses, bedspreads and weatherproofing of the outside of the house which is much needed after 26 years.
Perhaps you would like to make a donation in memory of a loved one or in honor of a loved one/family. For donations of $500 or more, the names will be inscribed on our Recognition Plaque located in the foyer. Regardless of the amount, we sincerely appreciate the spirit of the gift.
Please consider a donation and make checks payable to St. Joseph By the Sea. A donation of $250 or more is tax deductible and the proper form will be sent to you upon receipt of your gift.
How can we thank God enough for you in return for all the joy that we feel before our God because of you? 1 Thessalonians 3:9.
With much gratitude,
God bless you,
Sr. Brunilda Ramos, MPF
