Our Annual Easter Appeal / Bishop’s Appeal (“YELLOW BOOT CAMPAIGN”) continues. This appeal supports all of the vital ministries and programs throughout the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany of which we are a part here at St. Mary’s, Our Lady of the Lake, in northern Otsego County. It is our one opportunity during the year to reach out in support of all the people of God beyond the boundary of our own parish and benefit our own parish at the same time.
We asked the support of all our parish members - households & single individuals – to meet & exceed our assessment of $51,000. We have received gifts and/or pledges totaling 100% of our assessment goal as of mid-July! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Your gift directly helps our St. Mary’s Parish to pay its bill for the important work of the Diocese, so let us strive for 100% participation: not equal gifts, but equal Sacrifice. When your gifts and pledges surpass our assessment, 50% is sent right back to St. Mary’s, which is a win-win. THAT IS OUR FOCUS RIGHT NOW!
Kindly consider being as generous as you possibly can in responding to The Annual Easter Appeal – aka Bishop’s Appeal. Both your participation AND pledge fulfillment are essential to the success of the Appeal.
