BAA –The theme for the 2006 Bishop’s Annual Appeal, “Called to Serve Others”, explains the reason we give and the importance of our gifts. At St. Mary’s, we look to the past with deep gratitude for the great dedication of the generations which have preceded us. As people of faith, it is our turn to step up for future generations as we look to the future with a profound sense of hope. This year, our diocesan goal is $41,714. Our development committee has recommended to me that we make our goal as a parish this year a total of $100,000. Please prayerfully reflect upon a gift in proportion to your financial blessings. If you have not yet filled in your 2006 Bishop’s Annual Appeal envelope please do so soon. We are obligated to contact everyone who does not respond.
