Sharing His Love, Encouraging Hope, the theme for the 2018 Bishop’s Annual Appeal, inspires us, as people of faith, to share the love that God has for us, which can often bring hope to those who might not have ever known His love. Works of kindness and help, in sometimes the smallest way, can bring about a profound change in a person’s life. Through the BAA, we have an opportunity to bring about a positive change in the lives of many of God’s people. Through your generosity, you are supporting the various ministries and programs that are so vital in spreading His love. Our parish has been asked to raise $320,209. We can accomplish this if, after prayerful consideration, everyone gives what they can. Any amount raised over our goal will be returned to our parish to be used for our particular needs. Pledge envelopes will be sent to each home (extra envelopes can be found in the pews) and can be returned to the Parish Office or placed in the offertory basket at Mass. Your pledge and initial payment can even be made on our parish website using WeShare. Let us pray for the success of the Bishop’s Annual Appeal!
