By giving to the Annual Appeal, you answer God’s call to discipleship by supporting His work throughout our diocese. Your gift has a two-fold effect: it supports the work of diocesan services, ministries and programs, and also offsets our parish goal. Any overage will stay in the parish.
Please complete a pledge card this weekend. Thank you for your prayerful and generous response.
