A Word of Thanks
Our Parish has accomplished a lot over the past three years, and our level of activity has risen greatly. This year we reached a milestone by meeting 50% of our goal toward the Cardinal's Appeal. What is more,
ur parish is only $2,283 away from meeting 60% of the goal
which is considered significant by our Archdiocese. If you have not yet made a pledge, here is some news that may be of interest to you.
Due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, we have a first-of-a-kind opportunity for our parishioners:
The chance to double the impact of your donation to the Cardinal’s Annual Stewardship Appeal.
This donor will match – dollar for dollar – all new contributions made between now and October 31, up to $1 million – resulting in a $2 million contribution to the Appeal.
In these difficult times, this kind of contribution will go a long way to helping tomorrow's generations of New York Catholics.
