THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY AND COOPERATION!
CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL This is the annual Catholic Services Appeal Commitment Weekend throughout Northern Wisconsin. Our parish goal this year is that every family and individual will participate to the very best of their ability, in recognition and in thanksgiving to God’s many blessings. All registered parishioners should have received a personal letter from Bishop Powers seeking your personal commitment and a pledge of support. If you are among those in our parish family who have already responded or will do so today, fervent thanks and blessings are yours. Every pledge is vitally important and will bring us closer to reaching our goal of $51,480. God will indeed bless and reward your generosity and concern for others.
