      2019 Diocesan Annual Campaign
This week, we will kick off the Diocesan Annual Campaign, formerly known as the Bishop's Annual Lenten Appeal with the in-pew solicitation. Bishop Gainer has prepared a video message which can be viewed on our Parish website as well as the Diocesan home page. Faith Forward is the theme for the 2019 Diocesan Annual Campaign. Letters have been mailed from Bishop Gainer asking for support. We have been asked by Bishop Gainer to prayerfully consider a pledge to this effort. As a parish, we benefit in a number of ways: shared administrative services like payroll and accounts payable to Human Resources to outreach ministries led by the Diocese, and implemented at the parish level. By our collective efforts, from parishioners and parishes throughout the Diocese, a multitude of programs and ministries are offered to those in need. We are relying on your generous support to insure these programs and ministries continue. I thank you in advance for your loyal and steadfast support.
