Annual Catholic Appeal

A recent report of the Annual Catholic Appeal campaign activity revealed we have received pledges of $4,569,050.22 toward the diocesan goal of $4,871,000. To date, we have raised 93.3% of the goal. Can you help us meet or exceed the goal? 
As you know, support of the Appeal means bringing hope to the people of our diocese. Hope comes alive in our parishes and schools, religious education programs, ministry formation, and initiatives to foster justice, peace, and respect. Your support makes all this happen. We ask that if you have not already, please prayerfully consider a gift to the Annual Catholic Appeal.

Help the people of Haiti. A massive 7.2 magnitude earthquake has hit Haiti, killing nearly 1300 people, with death toll numbers increasing. The shock leveled homes, leaving thousands without shelter. Countless others are injured and hospitals are already overwhelmed. Your gift to Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is critical for the families in Haiti. When you give, you provide immediate assistance for our Haitian sisters and brothers desperate to survive this devastating situation. Your help will deliver immediate relief. Your prayers and support will make so much difference. Please give a vital gift today - visit www.crs.org.
