Annual Easter Appeal continues with our Parish as its focus

DSC03768

The Annual Easter Appeal  of St. Mary’s, which supports the Bishop’s Appeal for the Diocese of Albany, needs everyone’s help.  We are at our fair assessment of $51,000  but now – having reached our stated  goal – what is given returns to help our local Saint Mary’s in charitable works.   This includes the Religious Education Program of St. Mary’s,  the Youth Program,  the Annual Food Drives, etc.. If you have not  made a contribution to the Annual Easter Appeal yet – please do so today.  You can either mail a check payable to “The Bishop’s Appeal” directly to our church, drop it in the collection basket or donate directly through the Albany Diocese’ website at www.thebishopsappeal.org.

Please Pray for The Souls of Our Faithfully Departed
