Our parish will have the kickoff for the Hope Appeal Saturday and Sunday, May 25 and 26. Pledge cards will be placed in the pews for you to complete, or take home and return to the parish next weekend. Please be generous with your pledge as so many members of our diocese are served by the ministries provided by the Diocese. Our goal this year is $35,890.83.
