2021 ANNUAL DIOCESAN CATHOLIC APPEAL

Disciples of Christ, Witnesses of Hope

During this time each year, parishioners are invited to participate in the Diocese’s Annual Catholic Appeal.  Funds raised through the Appeal help provide pastoral, charitable, and educational programs and services to tens of thousands of people in our 12-county Diocese.

The theme for this year’s Appeal is Disciples of Christ, Witnesses of Hope.  Considering our current economy, many Appeal supported ministries are in record demand. Individuals and families are looking to the Church for help.  As Disciple of Christ, we must respond.  Each of us has a responsibility to bring hope and Christ’s love to those who need it most. 

Please give prayerful and thoughtful consideration to your resources and the needs of those served by the Annual Catholic Appeal. You can contribute to the Appeal by using the pledge card and return envelope mailed to your home, by accessing the Appeal website at www.cdow.org/annualcatholicappeal  or by completing a pledge card located on the table in the back of the Church. 

Our 2021 Parish target is $23, 000
Pledges to date  $19,485  (84.72%)

Thank you for being so generous. Every dollar counts! Help us reach our target!

DIVINE MERCY 

At three o'clock, implore My mercy, especially for sinners; and, if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion, particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony. This is the hour of great mercy. In this hour, I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Me in virtue of
My Passion (St. Faustina Diary, 1320).


Jesus, I trust in you!          Jezu, ufam Tobie!       Jesús, en Ti confío!
