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
