The 2013 Annual Appeal
October was when we began our Annual Stewardship Appeal.
The theme of our campaign is Blessed to be a Blessing.
The Annual Appeal campaign is much different than a one-time special collection. It is a pledge campaign through which you can make a gift – over 12 months– that will touch the lives of many others in a very positive way.
The Annual Appeal provides critical funding for the many programs and ministries of the parish. WE invite you to reflect on God’s gifts to you. He has given us all that we have. Your gifts in turn to our parish may be seen as given in gratitude for the continuing gifts that God gives you. Though at times it may be difficult to envision how one pledge can help an organization the size of our parish, each pledge makes a difference because the gifts of many, in the aggregate, enable our parish to offer desperately needed ministries to so many. Our combined gifts not only signify our gratitude to God, they glorify him by enabling the works of the Church: Praising God, Serving Neighbor.
Thank you for your prayerful reflection and you generous response. And, we ask for your continued prayers for our beloved parish in this important effort!
