The Bishop’s Annual Appeal will take place in May.

There will be an informational BAA meeting held in the school gymnasium following each of the weekend masses on May 2nd and 3rd. We are ahead of the appeal here because we ran a three year version of the appeal last year.  We will be asking those who have not made a three year pledge to the BAA to make a one or two year pledge.  The good news is that our three year pledges have already got us past our BAA goal for this year.  So, new pledge money will all stay right here at St. Mary’s for the ongoing care of our historic buildings and for scholarships to our grade school based on financial need.
