Hope Appeal still about $3,500 short of goal

Thank you to our generous pa­rishioners who have made a pledge to the annual Hope Ap­peal. If you have not yet re­sponded to the Hope Appeal, we ask that you prayerfully consider making a pledge to help support the needs of our diocese.

For years, your gifts to the Hope Ap­peal have helped thousands of people through the programs and ministries funded by the Hope Appeal.

As of Sept. 14, we have received pledges/gifts from 276 households out of a possible 1,005. They have donated or pledged $34,183, which is more than 90 percent of our goal of $37,667.65.

We recently sent out letters to parishioners asking for their help with the Hope Appeal. If you received a letter and have donated from May 2018 to the present, please disregard the letter. The diocese has developed a new system whereby they have donations sent directly to them and they just send us a listing of donors’ names, some of which appear slightly different from our list. Please excuse the mistake if you have received a letter in error.
