Bishop Walkowiak is asking you to make your commitment to support the work of our diocesan programs and ministries through the Catholic Services Appeal. These are ministries which benefit us all but are difficult for any one parish to provide on its own. Your gift to the CSA enables the Catholic Church to reach out to people in our 11 counties in a variety of ways, including through formation of our seminarians; youth programming; support for the homebound and incarcerated; families who are struggling; the hungry, and the homeless. Through the CSA, we all work together to care for the Church by sharing the gifts God has granted us. Our parish goal for 2020 is $156,686 and 100% participation, which means a pledge card from every parish family. We have received $57,700 in pledges toward our goal (not including online). Please join us as we work to continue God’s work of spirituality, charity, and education.
I am confident that your generosity will enable us to exceed our goal, but everyone’s participation is needed. Keep in mind that any amount raised above our goal stays in this parish. Thank you for doing your part for this important annual appeal.
