2017 ANNUAL BISHOP’S APPEAL - Our parish has joined with parishes throughout the Diocese of Youngstown in making a commitment to the 2017 Bishop’s Appeal for Catholic Charities and Church. This year’s goal is $4 million.
The Appeal is the primary funding source for Catholic Charities in our six-county diocese. There continues to be an ever-increasing number of needy persons asking for help and they depend on our support of the Bishop’s Appeal. The Appeal also helps to subsidize traditional Church ministries. Bishop Murry is counting on our support with the hope that every parish reaches their goal.
This year, the goal for Our Lady is $76,418.02
We ask that you prayerfully make a gift to the Annual Appeal, using the envelope in your pew or the kiosk, or the response card mailed to your home (no need to complete both). This year every donor from the 2016 appeal received a letter, soliciting your contribution. You may drop this off to the office or in the Sunday collection basket. Thank you in advance for your reflection and generous sacrificial response to the Bishop’s Appeal.
