Appeal Follow Up Bulletin.jpeg


We have begun our Annual Diocesan Appeal: One in Hope, One in Mission.  Many of you have generously donated to the Appeal last year and will receive a personalized packet from Bishop Bonnar in the mail.  We will have additional brochures and pledge cards in the pews. The Annual Diocesan Appeal is the major solicitation in support of Catholic Charities and the Ministries of the Diocese, seeking to raise $4,000,000 throughout our 80 parishes in the diocese.  Last year, our parish collectively raised $117,000.  I am eternally grateful to everyone who made a gift last year.  This amount was the result of 309 individuals and families supporting the Appeal.  Sadly, this is just 23% of all registered families.  Our parish goal this year is $110,800 (our goal is in direct relationship with a percentage of our annual offertory, making it obtainable).  I am asking everyone to prayerfully consider making a gift to the 2024 Annual Appeal.  If we were able to add just another 100 parishioners to the list of generous donors this year, the difference that could mean to our brothers and sisters in need in the area would be amazing.  More information will be presented in the coming weeks.


I ask that you keep everyone served by the Appeal in prayer and open your heart and mind to the work of the Appeal, using the reflection and Appeal Prayer below.  Thank you.
