LOWER COLUMBIA HOSPICE - RACE TO THE BAR
Did you know that the Lower Columbia Hospice is the ONLY hospice program in Clastsop County? LCH has a team of caregivers that include doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers, clergy, home health aides and volunteers. These wonderful compassionate folks provide comfort care to the terminally ill patients AND their families. On September 10 there will be a fundraiser to support LCH. It is "Race To The Bar" A 5K walk or a 10K run, beginning at the Peter Iredale Shipwreck at Fort Stevens State Park. Our Lady of Victory and St. Peter the Fisherman would like to be one of the sponsors of this very important fundraiser, as Hospice is about "Life" and caring for the end of life. We have already raised $500 toward our sponsorship. We are looking for $500 more. Our church name will be on the t-shirts and all promo material. Wouldn't it be great to show that the local Catholic community supports this program. For more information contact Mary Davies at 503-738-0313.

PLEDGE GOAL FOR OUR FAMILY RELIGIOUS EDUCATION COORDINATOR
We are only at 1/3 of our pledge goal. Help us keep this position for the coming year!
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION COORDINATOR PLEDGE
We were blessed to have started our Religious Education ministry with an experienced and dedicated individual. This position has grown to now include the responsibilities of bulletin editor, Liturgy Committee chairman, Adult Education classes, RCIA, as well as assist in marriage preparation. We committed to this ministry initially for at least 5 years. The first fiscal quarter revenues for the Educational Coordinator, however, fell short of our budgeted goal. To ensure that we meet our commitment, please fill out the pledge card dedicated to the Family Religious Education Program which is available in the pews and can also be printed out here: pledge card available here and return it to the parish office or donate online by entering an amount in the "Religious Coordinator Fund" box here: Donate Online. We need everyone's commitment to fund this essential part of our parish's Spiritual life.

A FUN AND EASY WAY TO SERVE THE CHURCH
We really need hosting families/individuals to set up and clean up our coffee and doughnuts after 11am Mass. It is NOT difficult or time consuming and we will train and give easy directions! Please call the parish office at 503-738-6161
We want to keep you fully informed of our financial needs in managing the Parish and its ministries. Thank you for your generosity! We ended the first fiscal quarter with weekly offertory collections ahead of budget. However, in the Stewardship pledge campaign we have only received a very small percentage of pledges. We need our parish to respond to this important need.
WHY THE STEWARDSHIP PLEDGE IS SO IMPORTANT
Consider the following example. Your employer tells you that he is going to pay you, but he doesn?t tell you how much. So you work each week and at the end of the week he hands you a pay check. There was no way you could budget for your family needs. Well, that is how a parish operates when it doesn't know what it might receive from week to week. By making an annual Stewardship pledge, it enables the parish to have a better idea of the expected revenues for the coming year. Without a pledge, we only guess!
LOOKING FOR ADULTS TO SERVE AS SACRISTANS
LOOKING FOR ADULTS TO SERVE AS SACRISTANS, EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS, LECTORS AND ALTAR SERVERS. PLEASE CONTACT THE PARISH OFFICE 503-738-6161 OR CHRIS ROSE 503-738-3221
