THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY AND COOPERATION
CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL Thank you for filling out a Catholic Services Appeal Envelope. For those who did not fill one out, please do so before you leave church today. No gift is too small, and our parish is trying to reach 100% participation. By making your gift today you can save a volunteer from having to call you saving time and expense. There are many challenges facing us today. The responsibility our parish has to help provide diocesan and services and ministries such as support for vocations and education of seminarians in an answer to that challenge.
