BISHOP'S FUND APPEAL 2018
Thanks to the generosity of many of our parishioners to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, we have been able to move from maintenance to mission and engage many more lay people in the work of the Church. We are spreading the Good News of our faith not by increasing program budgets but by moving resources to priority ministries. A few new initiatives include:
* Revitalization of our Pre-Cana program better assists couples to put Christ at the center of their relationship as they prepare for the Sacrament of Marriage.
* A new Lay Formation Program and a worship commission are now in place to offer greater engagement opportunities and diocesan services to families and parishes.
* New Parish Staff and Volunteer Lenten Retreats were offered by the Diocese in both the northern and southern parts of the state.
Please consider a gift during the In-Pew Phase which saves resources by reducing our mailings. Any gift, no matter the size, counts!
