BISHOP'S ANNUAL CATHOLIC SERVICE APPEAL the annual diocesan Catholic Service Appeal will be taken up next weekend February 7-8, 2015. The theme this year is "”Called to Serve". The annual appeal provides critical funding for the many programs and ministries of our diocese. Each pledge does make a difference because we ask all parishioners around the diocese to participate. If you receive a pledge form in the mail, please complete it and send it in to the diocese. For those who do not receive a mailing you can make a pledge commitment at all Masses on February 8-9th. Thank you for your prayerful consideration and generous support.
