The 2007 Bishop’s Annual Appeal began May 5-6 and so far the results are encouraging. If you have not yet had an opportunity to pledge, please do so by dropping your BAA envelope in the collection or mailing it to the parish office. 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.
