Support Your Parish

Annual Appeal

If you haven't already, please consider donating today.  Contact the office at 856-6451 if you need an Appeal Pledge form and have not completed one in church.

Once a year, our bishop asks each of us to make a commitment to support the work of diocesan programs and ministries that provide services that no one parish can offer on its own. Your gift helps bring Christ to those who seek His presence - the poor, the sick, the distressed, our children and our elderly.

Our parish target is $73,000. Your financial support also provides funding for your parish since 100% of monies collected above our target will be returned for our own ministerial needs.

Please give prayerful consideration to your resources as well as the thousands of individuals and families who receive needed assistance through ministries supported by the Annual Catholic Appeal.

Description and Details:

The first phase of the Memorial Garden has been completed and was funded by the generous donations of the members of the parish.  Their support has helped make this phase of the Memorial Garden a huge success.  We invite you to stop by and see the beautiful gardens.  There are five distinct gardens:  Winter Garden, Rose Garden, Butterfly Garden, Conifer Garden and Tree Garden.

The walkway, made of EP Henry pavers, leading to the sanctuary is in the shape of a cross.  The Stations of the Cross will be placed in the gardens outlining the cross shaped walkway.

At the head of the cross is a sanctuary where statues of the Blessed Virgin and the Sacred Heart statue of Christ will be located in a place of honor.  Benches for sitting and praying will be placed in the sanctuary and along the walkway.

Individual inscribed memorial bronze plaques, for the purchase of a statue or a Station of the Cross, will be mounted by the purchased statue and purchased Station.  Individual inscribed memorial bronze plaques for the purchase of a garden or pavers will be mounted on the wall behind the sanctuary at the head of the cross.

We invite you to visit the Memorial Prayer Garden located at Mary Mother of Peace, a place for reflection and prayer for the parishioners and guests of St Michael the Archangel/ Mary Mother of Peace Parish.  The gardens are visible from Rt. 24 and are lit at dusk.
