I extend a special thanks to all those who have given or made pledges to our annual appeal. Your gift helps make possible the many ministries of outreach and parish support that are funded by the CMA. If you haven’t made a pledge or gift yet to this year’s appeal I ask you to join your fellow parishioners who have already given. We are closing in on our parish share for the CMA; please help us to reach our parish goal. Pledge cards and CMA giving envelopes can be found in the church vestibules.
