2015 Bishop’s Appeal is under way
We are now several weeks into the 2015 Bishop’s Appeal, or as we call it, the ”Easter Appeal”.  This is our opportunity to unite together as one Catholic family, to answer the challenge given to us by Jesus Christ to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, comfort the afflicted, and to promote justice for every person.
 
If you have not already done so, please take the time to prayerfully reflect on the gifts that you have been given by God and respond to the Bishop’s Appeal as generously as you possibly can.  Your participation is essential to the success of the Bishop’s Appeal.  Please join other Catholics from throughout the 14 counties of the Diocese in supporting this vital collection.  Our parish’s success can only be obtained through EVERYONE doing their part. 
 
Pledge/Donation envelopes are available at our Church -OR- you can donate on line at www.thebishopsappeal.org.  Thank you for helping the Diocese be the hands and feet of Jesus.
The Joy of First Holy Communion was celebrated on May 9th
