A message from our Pastor: Once parishioners realized that the pandemic was here to stay, they started contacting the church to see how they could help by getting their offertory donations to the church. Many were mailed in, and a fair amount of parishioners accessed the diocesan website which set up an easy method to use for contributions; people also used our One Parish link. Parishioners also remained loyal to the Diocesan Lenten Appeal, and our church was able to meet both the diocesan goal and the parish goal.
Our parish was already struggling to meet the budget for our ordinary expenses, and despite the generosity of so many, our contributions are down now approximately 20%. Before the COVID-19 situation, we were under our budget by about 11%, but the difficulty for all of us at this time reflects the ongoing downward trend. We sincerely thank all of you who were able to come through for the church at this time, and we hold all of you in prayer as you have many of your own personal needs.
You can continue to make a commitment online or by sending donations directly to the parish via U.S. Mail or by visiting our website for online offertory. www.PBCatholic.org

Have you checked out FORMED The Catholic Faith. On Demand.?
"I am SO excited to have this resource! It's almost like a "Catholic Netflix." FORMED has a bunch of movies, documentaries and kids shows plus audiobooks, bible studies and more. I was really surprised how much content is available. AND it's FREE this year for all parishioners! I LOVE that it is FAITH based and points us back to what's most important rather than mindless entertainment. The kids and I are really enjoying it." - Emily C.
