Annual Ministry Appeal 2018

We thank all of you who have participated in the 2018 Appeal to support the various ministries of the Diocese as well as our own Parish Building Fund. With 96 individuals or families participating (87% of our Participation Goal), we have now received donations or pledges for $42,933 (86% of our Financial Goal). We have met our responsibility to assist with the diverse ministries of the Diocese this year. Please remember that our Parish Financial Goal is $50,000, with the Participation Goal of at least 110 individuals or families. If we meet this goal, $39,500 will then be added to our Building Fund.

It is not too late to make a donation or pledge to support the AMA. You can also make online donations on the Diocesan website. A pledge or donation can be fulfilled during the coming months by cash, check or credit card. Envelopes continue to be available at the entrance of the church and can be completed and placed in the basket at the foot of the AMA Thermometer next to the candles. Thank you.
