Returning God's Gifts 2020

This year the Annual Pastoral Appeal is themed: Be Rich in Good Works(1 Timothy 6:18). It is a call from the Lord to stir us to be a source of hope and life for people here and now, and for those who will follow through our words and actions. Together, let us pray that the Holy Spirit guides our journey and bestows His grace upon us as we serve others. Please pray for the success of our appeal, which reaches beyond ourselves and our parish, and gives hope to thousands through the ministries, programs, and services that enrich a Christ-centered way of life.
