ST. LAWRENCE CHURCH
Solemnity of our Lord Jesus Christ
King of the universe
FROM THE PASTOR’S HAND
Greetings in the Lord and Happy Feast Day!
Today we in the Universal Church honor the Lord with the title “Christ the
King.” For you and me, having domicile in the local Church of NorthGeorgia, today’s feast is of particular importance because our Cathedral –
the mother church of our archdiocese – is named “Christ the King.” Today
is the last (crowning, if you will) Sunday of the entire Liturgical Year; for
next Sunday begins a new liturgical year with the Season of Advent.
It is apropos to recall that Advent is a four-week season of preparation for
Christ the King’s Second Coming! Hence, Advent is a penitential season (NB:
violet vestments are worn), designed to get our attention and invite us to get
our lives and our hearts in order, prepared for the end of times when Christ
will return in all His glory!
Do try and stay focused on this (despite secular-christmas bombarding us
too early), as you make preparations of hearth and home for the coming
religious Christmas Season that begins Dec 25 (and will last through Jan
10). Then, and not until then, we will sweetly recall Jesus’ First Coming at
Bethlehem two millennia ago. Advent is preparation for his Second Coming;
Christmas is remembering his First.
Back to today, though…traditionally this is the day parishes across the globe
celebrate the “Rite of Welcome and Acceptance” for those journeying toward
one-ness with us as Catholic Christians. We at St. Lawrence will celebrate
this ancient Rite at our 7pm Vigil and 10am Morning Masses, when the non
-baptized are welcomed as Catechumens in preparation for Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist; and those already baptized in other denominations are
accepted as Candidates for Confirmation and Eucharist.
I invite you to remember that, as these Catechumens and Candidates journey toward the Easter Sacraments of Initiation, you and I are to also journey: in prayerful support for them…and in personal recommitment to our
own life in Christ, the King. Whether it is Ordinary Time, Advent, Christmas, Lent or Easter…we are always journeying in faith, with one another,
and together in Christ! Enter into the journey with purpose; make it worthwhile and fruitful for you and your household.

MASS INTENTIONS
How should we revere our Lord and King? We, as good stewards,
fully acknowledge the true presence of the Body and Blood of
Christ in the Eucharist and strive to receive Him during Mass in a
prayerful and reverent manner. We also understand that through
the Eucharist we are nourished and strengthened to serve the
Lord as He has planned for us. What do we bring of our time, talent, and treasure to the Eucharistic table?

Thank you!
WITH THE YEAR’S END APPROACHING, there are
opportunities for you to be tax-wise in your charitable
giving. A cash gift to St. Lawrence of any amount will
provide an income tax deduction for this year. A gift of
stock or real estate avoids capital gains tax on the sale
of appreciated assets and provides a charitable deduction. For information about giving strategies that can provide additional tax savings and cash flow, contact Diane
Duquette, Director of Gift Planning, The Catholic Foundation of North Georgia, dduquette@cfnga.org or 404497-9440.

To the St. Lawrence Parish Family
The St. Lawrence Parish Finance Council is pleased to report the financial results for
the first quarter of the fiscal year July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016.
We have had a very good start to the fiscal year. Offertory is over budget and well
ahead of last year. Thank you for your outstanding generosity. Also, thank you for
converting to electronic giving. It has made a big difference! Save yourself time and
stress by signing up for electronic giving on the St. Lawrence website
http://www.saintlaw.org/ or contact Janet Volion in the office. This year has started
out with more children in the Religious Ed and Preschool programs, a big turnaround
from the past few years. Your pledge payments to this year’s Archbishop’s Annual
Appeal have again exceeded our Archdiocesan target. We met the target a month
earlier than last year. This year’s refund to date is over $13,000 more than last year’s
refund for the same period. The garage sale generated just under $14,000 which is
down $7,000 from last year. Finally, the debt reduction collection applied to date
shortens our mortgage another three months and saved us over $9,500 in interest.
Regarding the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal, please keep up your great efforts to
complete your pledge commitment by the end of December. If you have any questions/concerns about your pledge/payments or did not receive pledge reminders,
please contact Janet Volion in the parish office. Remember that every dollar paid
between now and December 31 is returned to St. Lawrence and does not go the Archdiocese.
Overall, expenses are tracking slightly under budget, which is not unusual for the first
quarter. Most parish activities are ramping up from the summer, which makes it
difficult to accurately budget which month certain expenses will actually occur.

For example, approximately $45,000 in facilities repairs and maintenance did not take
place as planned, resulting in a favorable variance.
Speaking of repairs, you may have noticed some problems with the wooden beams in
and near the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. Inspections have determined that we have
some serious water and insect damage that will require extensive repairs to fix. Also
the narthex windows have suffered serious rotting and need replacement. These problems can be traced back to when the Church was built in the 1980’s. These repairs are
not included in the budget. Preliminary estimates for repairs are in the range of
$60,000 to $100,000 for the beams, $30,000 to $40,000 for the windows and $5,000 to
$10,000 to permanently fix the water drainage issue near the beams. These repairs will
consume most if not all our Capital Reserve Fund which will delay other scheduled
capital improvement items. Please be on the lookout for news regarding a special
collection to cover these expenses.
Having just completed our annual stewardship renewal period, our financial results
reflect the treasure and time components of Time, Talent and Treasure. It is important
to note that our expenses reflect the time and talent components in that we have volunteers performing many parish activities including reception, sacristans, registration, and
faith formation that we would otherwise have to hire staff to perform. We thank our
volunteers for their contribution of time and talents, an invaluable gift that makes St.
Lawrence special.
Again, thank you for your support of St. Lawrence. If you have any questions please
let me know.

Del Escritorio del Párroco
Saludos en el Señor y Feliz Día de Fiesta!
Hoy en la Iglesia Universal honramos al Señor con el título
"Cristo Rey". Para usted y para mí, el tener un domicilio en
la iglesia local de norte de Georgia, la fiesta de hoy es de
particular importancia porque lleva el nombre de nuestra Catedral – la iglesia madre de nuestra Arquidiócesis – "Cristo
Rey". Hoy es la última (coronación, si se quiere así) del domingo del año litúrgico; para el próximo domingo comienza
un nuevo año litúrgico con el tiempo de Adviento.
Es oportuno recordar que el Adviento es un tiempo de cuatro
semanas de preparación para la segunda venida de Cristo
Rey! Por lo tanto, el Adviento es un tiempo penitencial (Nota:
Se usan las vestiduras color violeta), diseñadas para captar
nuestra atención y nos invitan a poner nuestros corazones y
nuestras visas en orden, preparándonos para el fin de los
tiempos cuando Cristo volverá en todo su esplendor!
Tratemos de estar enfocados en esto (a pesar de la secularNavidad que nos bombardeó demasiado pronto), así como
haces preparativos en la casa y el hogar para la próxima
temporada de Navidad religiosa que comienza el 25 de Diciembre (y durará hasta el 10 de Enero). Entonces y no hasta entonces, dulcemente recordaremos que Jesús vino primero a Belén hace dos milenios. Adviento es la preparación
para su segunda venida; Navidad es recordar la primera.
Regresando a este día, aunque... Tradicionalmente este es
el día en que las parroquias en todo el mundo celebran, el
"Rito de Aceptación y Bienvenida" para aquellos que están
en el viaje hacia la unidad con nosotros como cristianos católicos. En San Lorenzo celebraremos este rito antiguo en
nuestras Misas de la mañana de 10:00 a.m. y tarde de 3:00
p.m., cuando los no bautizados son bienvenidos como catecúmenos en preparación para el bautismo, confirmación y
Eucaristía; y los ya bautizados en otras denominaciones son
aceptados como candidatos para la confirmación y la Eucaristía.
Los invito a recordar que así como estos catecúmenos y
candidatos viajan hacia la Pascua para celebrar los sacramentos de iniciación, usted y yo somos también viajaremos
en: oración por ellos... y en un re-compromiso personal con
nuestra propia vida en Cristo, el Rey. De alguna manera sea
tiempo Ordinario, Adviento, Navidad, Cuaresma o Pascua...
somos viajeros en la fe, uno con el otro y juntos en Cristo!
Entremos en este viaje con propósito; es fructífero y vale la
pena para usted y su familia.
