“Love Never Fails!” - 1 Cor 13:8
Please spend some time reflecting on the Annual Catholic Appeal brochure linked above. While funding a number of Archdiocesan ministries, the Appeal supports parish ministries that provide religious education to children, youth, and adults in economically disadvantaged communities. It is also one of the largest philanthropic sources of financial assistance for Catholic schools in the Archdiocese.
This year, the theme of the Appeal is: “Love Never Fails”. In his first letter to the Corinthians, Paul instructs that love is greatest virtue. God loves us always. He gives us everything.
As we contemplate His gifts to us, we should also reflect on our gratitude for these gifts. Your financial support for the work our parish, of our Archdiocese and of the Church throughout the world is, in fact, one way to express this gratitude. Please give generously to the 2013 Annual Catholic Appeal.
When our parish reaches its goal in paid pledges, 100% of the additional funds received will be returned to us for use in our parish.
In addition to providing for ministries and services throughout the Archdiocese, the Appeal also funds services that are of great help to other ministries here in our parish.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration and generous response.
