The Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal will be sending a mailing soon to parishioners who have not yet made a gift to the CMAA. The severe snowstorm we encountered over Commitment Weekend greatly affected the pledge numbers. The CMAA helps our parish and the diocese, providing countless ministries, programs, and services. If you have not done so already, please reflect on God’s gifts to you, and consider making a pledge. Any amount will make a difference! You can also click on the CMAA link above to donate ONLINE!!!
Please check the bulletin to learn the details of the SCRIP program, an easy way to raise funds for our parish, just by purchasing cards to do your usual shopping from a wide variety of stores.
