EXPRESSIONS OF DISCIPLESHIP – 2019/20 CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL

Will be held next weekend in our parish. The appeal is an opportunity for us, as a faith family, to join together to do the work of the Lord. All families are encouraged to support the CSA. By giving to the CSA you are answering God’s call to discipleship to put the work of God before your own needs. The Church serves each of us in some way and our financial support is needed to continue God’s work in our area. In addition, every dollar contributed to the appeal assist our parish in off-setting our yearly diocesan assessment responsibility to our Diocesan Church. This year, our goal is $51,346.00.
