BAA UPDATE – A LETTER FROM BISHOP CAMPBELL

Father Corcoran received a letter from the Bishop Campbell and he wanted to share with you the Bishop’s expression of appreciation to the donors and volunteers whose work and efforts led to our surpassing our 2011 BAA goal.

The theme for this campaign, United in Faith, Sharing in Love, was demonstrated through your good and faithful stewardship.

Thanks to all who made this appeal successful.
