Bulletin Announcement

  

“How marvelous it would be if, at the end of

the day, each of us could say: today I have performed an act of charity towards others” – Pope Francis

Each year, at this time, we are encouraged to consider the needs of our Church and of the Diocese as one family in Christ. 

Through the Annual Catholic Appeal, we are asked to make a commitment to support the work of our diocesan programs and ministries, that provide services which no one parish could provide on its own. It is our call to reach beyond the boundaries of our parish, and the confines of our own personal sphere, to help build up our faith community and uplift our brethren. 

Just as we are one in the Body of Christ, we must remember that we are one with other parishes.

“Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others” – Philippians 2:4

Thank you for your prayers, support and participation!
