Catholic Ministry Appeal Update:
We have reached our parish goal! Last weekend we held the in-pew-solicitation for the CMA and 20 additional gifts and pledges were received. We have not yet received the official update report from the diocese since the new pledges and gifts were sent in to the diocese, but if my calculations are correct our totals are now 150 parishioners have given or pledged $36,560 which is 103.97% of our parish goal. I thank you for your generous support of the Catholic Ministry Appeal and for helping us reach our parish goal. If all the pledges are fulfilled by May 31, 2018 our parish will receive 50% of the overage back for our parish use. Again thank you for your generosity; your gift helps to continue to spread the good news of Jesus our Lord from one generation to the next.
God’s blessings and peace, Father Bill

This we ask through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, now and forever. Amen.
