“For the measure with which you measure will in turn be measured out to you.”

Catholic Services Appeal

Last year, the Catholic Services Appeal disbursed $8,372,773 to the many wonderful ministries in our Archdiocese.

The 2019 anticipated ministry payout amounts / “ministry goal amounts” are the following. Actual payout amounts will depend upon how many dollars are brought in through this year’s campaign:

Abria Pregnancy Resources: $50,000

American Indian Ministry: $200,000

ACCW: $25,585

Campus Ministry – Newman Center: $264,000

Campus Ministry – Saint Paul’s Outreach: $11,000

Venezuelan Mission: $110,000

Youth and Young Adult Ministry: $64,000

I am so proud to announce that last year our parish met and surpassed our goal of $11,018 for the first time in at least 6 years!  This means we will receive a rebate from the CSA for 25% of what our parish donated.  That means we should be receiving a check for almost $3,000!

Last year, we had a total of 114 donors from our parish, averaging a gift of $104 each.

This year, our goal is the same amount as last year, so $11,018.

Please join me in making a gift to the Catholic Services Appeal again this year.  Thank you for your support of these wonderful ministries in our local church.

You are in my daily prayers.

God bless you,

Fr. Nick VanDenBroeke
