BAA WEEKEND – MAY 5-6, 2012

A MESSAGE FROM FATHER FRANKS

The 2012 Bishop’s Annual Appeal will be taking place in our parish on May 5-6, 2012. Every year the funds raised through this effort are a source of hope and inspiration for many within our diocese. Our parish family has been asked to raise $53,597.00 toward the Diocesan goal of $5,900.000.00. I am asking each family to please consider a gift of at least $20.00 a month for the next ten (10) months for a total gift of $200.00. This will allow us to reach our goal and possibly exceed it.

This year’s BAA campaign is as important as ever in that all money donated by the parish beyond our BAA goal will be returned to the parish and used to perform necessary repairs of the many parish buildings, including windows for the Church and Specht Center, the Church roof, doors, the front steps and the sidewalk on 3rd Street.  Please watch your bulletin for additional information.

As a parish, we rely on each and every family to join together to help us do our part for the vision and mission of the Church. Thank you and God bless.
