Annual Easter Appeal continues with our Parish as its focus

DSC03768The Annual Easter Appeal  of St. Mary’s, which supports the Bishop’s Appeal for the Diocese of Albany, needs everyone’s help.  We have reached our assessment of $52,000 in donations and pledges,  but now, having reached our stated goal, what is donated 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. THANK YOU!
