Our parish goal is $39,335.45. Thank you to all parishioners who had submitted their pledges. If you have not pledged for this annual appeal, please do so by taking one of the pledge envelopes found at the entrances of the Church and dropping it in the collection basket or returning it to the Parish Center. Thank you on behalf of those schools and parishes who will benefit from your contributions. May God continue to bless you with the virtue of generosity.
As each parish household prayerfully reflects on the amount of the pledge offered to help these parishes and schools, please reflect on the following questions.
1. Do I really believe that I have a duty to help others who are in need?
2. Is what I give to the work of the Church enough to show how grateful I am for what God has given me?
3. Do I appreciate how important every contribution to Together in Mission is to the people in the subsidized parishes and schools?
Please pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit as you consider the above questions and give generously, according to what God has given to you.
What is Together in Mission
Together in Mission provides substantial financial support to 35 parishes and 53 schools in our Archdiocese. These parishes and schools provide education, ministry and a Catholic presence for tens of thousands of our sisters and brothers. Sometimes it is difficult to envision how your pledge can help so many people. But , it does. To see how, please review the materials and read the statements of those whose parishes and schools receive support. The theme of the campaign is “My Hope comes From God” Psalm 62:6. Together in Mission provides an opportunity to show our concern for those served by the parishes and schools that need your financial support. If you received your pledge form in the mail, please complete it and mail it back or bring it to Mass next weekend. Also, we will conduct our annual Together in Mission in-pew pledge process at all Masses next weekend.
As always, what you give should be given in gratitude and thanksgiving for what God has given to you. Thank you for your prayerful consideration and generous response.
