2015 Archbishop’s Annual Appeal

AAA 2015In addition to providing for ministries and services throughout the Archdiocese, the Annual Appeal also funds services that are of great help to our parish, such as training for our pastor, staff and catechists.  This year, the theme of the Appeal is: “All This I Do for the Sake of the Gospel.”  Our Archbishop has written “We are called to reflect the great love of Jesus Christ, that he would become man and give His life for us, through all of our daily actions and how we live our lives.”  Your financial support for the work of our parish, our Archdiocese and our Church throughout the world is, in fact, one way to give Him glory and express our gratitude.  Thank you to all who have responded to the mailing from Archbishop Gregory.  If you received the mailing and have not responded, there is still time to do so.  Our in-pew Commitment Weekend will be February 7-8, 2015.  The in-pew envelopes will have a place where those who have already given by mail can indicate that fact.
