Assistant Lay Chairperson Report - January 2008

Submitted by Caye Caswick

Stewardship Committee

The 2007 Stewardship Appeal/Campaign gleaned 76 Estimate of Giving Cards for an Annual income of $166,353.00 in 2008. Thank You letters were sent January 14th to 2008 Members enclosing a bible reading pamphlet and Orthodox Christian membership card.

By comparison, we received less pledges than 2007, but more annual income – so our parish is changing but the funds are growing.

Charities:

We made the following benevolence/charitable contributions in 2007:

PADS Homeless Shelter
Coptic Orphans in Egypt
Holy Myrrhbearer’s Monastery Roof
IOCC Annual Banquet
Come Receive the Light
OCMC – Tanzania
St. Vladimir’s Seminary
OCMC – Romania
Flight 93 National Memorial
Pregnancy Assistance South Suburban (PASS)
Local families in need

Total 2007 benevolence/charitable contributions were $[see Treasurer’s Report for total amount].

In addition, St. Luke’s has an ongoing food drive which services the Evergreen Park and Lemont Food Pantry as well as our annual coat drive.
