Like every year at this time, we join all parishes to assist others in need through the Annual Catholic Appeal. Your support in 2021 is very important to our parish and to the local Catholic Charities that must carry out important work in the coming months. In 2020, your gifts helped our charities to quickly extend a hand to thousands of people and families in dire need due to COVID-19. Our parish was able to support our school with families struggling more than ever and especially our St. Vincent de Paul Society through the 25% parish share.
As we reflect on our blessings and consider our sacrificial acts during this Lenten Season, we ask all of us to do two things:
- Watch the stories in this year’s video. They are truly inspiring and remind us that we make a profound difference in many lives with our financial support.
- Give what you can. 25% comes back to our parish for our outreach to those in need. You can even just drop a little cash in the basket. Any amount is a big help!
Please bring your filled out envelope or your one-time cash donation to Mass this weekend if you are attending. You may also drop it off in the parish office mailbox or mail it into the diocese (address is on the envelope). As always, please make sure you put the parish name on it! You may also donate online by clicking HERE.
Let us pray for all those who depend on our generosity through the Annual Catholic Appeal: those who need assistance and all those who work tirelessly in the charitable organizations and parish outreach ministries that serve them.
Thank you and blessings to you and your loved ones.
