The 2007 Bishop’s Annual Appeal begins this weekend, May 5 & 6. All St. Mary’s parishioners were sent a letter from Father Thomas regarding this appeal. Enclosed with the letter was your pledge envelope. Please drop it in the collection or mail it back to the parish as soon as you are able. If you did not receive your letter please call the parish at 445-9668; there is a possibility that you may not be registered!

ST. Mary’s 2007 target amount for The Bishop’s Annual Appeal is $43,539.98. In order to reach our goal please consider a gift of a sacrificial nature. Remember, any amount donated exceeding our parish goal returns to the parish once the pledges are completely paid in full. This has been a huge help to parish finances in recent years.

Please remember to honor your bingo commitment!

 “How do I make a return to the Lord for all he has done for me.”
