Upcoming in Faith Formation
Continuing in December; The Diocese of Portland is implementing its safety program for children in every parish and school within the Diocese this academic year. Circle of Grace aims to equip our children and young people by arming them with essential knowledge and skills grounded in the richness of our faith. This program helps children and young people to understand their own (and other’s) dignity in mind, body, and spirit.

New Approach to the Parish Offertory Envelopes
Offertory Envelopes will be mailed to pa-rishioners beginning this coming year. Many parishes have found this approach much more convenient for the parishioner and for the parish.
The envelopes will be mailed each quarter of the upcoming year, beginning with the first mailing taking place between December 7th and 19th for the first quarter of 2019. In addition to the regular and special collections we have had in the past, there will be a new local collec-tion envelope for our Parish. It will be the “Floor” fund. This is designed to help both churches in Kennebunk and Wells. St. Mary in Wells is beginning the process of replac-ing the floor of the church, and St. Martha in Kennebunk is doing the same for the floor in its church hall.
We hope this will assist in the budgeting of these major projects in the upcoming year. We will be having some additional mailings and information concerning our Offertory Collec-tions in the coming weeks. This information is a Diocesan project being used by all Parishes. We believe that the new envelope distribution will work well.
