EXPRESSIONS OF DISCIPLESHIP – 2019/20 CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL
If you have not yet responded to the 2019-20 CSA, please set aside a moment to prayerfully consider a gift amount that your means will permit. Be assured 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!”
NIGHT WITHOUT A HOME Saturday at noon through Sunday at noon – October 19-20, at the corner of Belknap and Tower. Needs include food, clothing, gift cards, blankets, monetary donations, etc. Thank you for your support!
