Our parish is beginning the annual Catholic Services Appeal. Our parish assessment this year is $88,685.77. This is $2,500 less than last years assessment. We are hopeful that your gifts and payments will exceed our assessment because the excess will be returned to the parish. In consultation with the Pastoral and Finance Councils, we have decided that we will use any excess payments will be given to the Food Pantry. Please help our parish support the many ministries of our diocese and support the ongoing work of our parish. Thank you!
