This weekend will be our kick-off for the 2019-20 CSA (Catholic Service Appeal) drive. We have a goal of $81, 231.00 that needs to be met, so that the diocese can run the programs that feed our souls in the Faith. They also allow the diocese to contribute to the world wide mission of Christ’s Church through the Holy See. We have many blessings in our own lives and since many of us are unable to personally go on mission work or our offerings alone are not enough to supply the needs of the world; by joining our resources with the whole Catholic Church we can do great things for our neighbors around the world. If we exceed our goal, the extra money comes back to the parish for our needs as we see in our parish and community. This weekend you will have the opportunity to make a pledge to give throughout the next year or give a one-time gift. You may also take the card home and pray about what you are able to offer, or give online through our website. As we have in the past, we will continue to give 10% of our weekly collection to help fulfill our obligation, so you may also increase your weekly donation by 10% to assist our efforts to be good stewards towards the greater mission of the Church.
