The 2017 Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal is underway!
It begins with a mailing that many of our parishioners have received or will  soon receive. This is a mailing from Bishop Conlon asking for a pledge to the  2017 Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal. The Appeal not only funds many of the operations of the Diocese, it funds services that are of great help to the ministries here in our parish. For example, funds support St. Raymond Grade School, Religious Education Classes, Youth Ministry, marriage prep, RCIA, Development and Stewardship, Pro Life, Justice and Peace, Men’s and Women’s Groups...

This year, the theme of the Appeal is “Held in God’s Hands.” What a wonderful thought! When we accept that God knows what we need and will provide for our tomorrows, we are able to be good stewards of the gifts He has entrusted to us. One way that we can be good stewards, is by giving back to God the gifts He shared with us. We can support our parish, our diocese and the Church throughout the world with gifts of time, talent and treasure. The gifts we give enable ministries, education, and services that touch thousands of lives.

Our parish goal is $92,124.00. With your financial support, we can exceed this goal. When we exceed our goal in paid pledges, we will receive 70% of the amount over goal for use in our parish. Please answer Bishop Conlon’s request and make a generous pledge. All pledges can be paid in ten (10) installments. Thank you in advance for your support.
