Charity is not just giving, rather removing the need of those who receive charity and liberating them from it when possible.

The May 1 deadline for submitting your pledge forms in support of our combined parish's bid to retain the church building at St. Thomas of Villanova is fast approaching. May 1 is this Sunday coming. If you have not already submitted your pledge and are unable to get it mailed in time, or unable to drop it off at the parish office at 2690 Topsail Road, please drop it in the collection box at St. Thomas of Villa Nova church at any of the masses this weekend. Masses are celebrated on Saturday at 4:00 PM, and Sunday at 9:30 and 11:00 AM. Remember, all we need by May 1 is your pledge. We will contact you to make arrangements for your contribution. Your contribution needs to be provided before May 15. Thank you for your support of our three parishes in this difficult time.

    There appears to be some confusion in regards to your contributions being taken back by the Archdiocese. The bank accounts of all parishes are being monitored on a regular basis by the accounting firm of Ernst and Young on behalf of the Archdiocese to track revenue and expenses. In a situation where revenue is considerably more than enough to cover the regular parish expenses, there may be some funds taken back by the Archdiocese. We are nowhere near having excess funds in our bank account. We are desperately trying to have sufficient funds to cover our expenses. We are depending on you to keep making your contributions so that we can continue to be a self- sustaining parish. Thank you again for your continued support.
