CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL
If you have not yet responded to the 2021/22 CSA, please set aside a moment to prayerfully consider a gift amount that your means will permit. Be assured that the Lord knows what is in your heart and how you share your gifts. While it is understood that we cannot all give equally, we are still called by the Gospel to give of ourselves in a way that reflects our blessings. Your gift, whether large or small, matters greatly to the diocese, our parish and to the Lord! Scripture tells us, “There is more happiness in giving than receiving!”
