CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL
Thank you to all who have pledged to the 2021-22 Campaign. No gift is too small and our parish is trying to reach 100% participation. By making your gift you save a volunteer from having to call you, saving time and expense. Our goal this year is $50,838. There are many challenges that face us today – the shortage of priests is one such challenge. Our financial support is needed to continue God’s work here on earth. Thank you for your continuing generosity!
