Diocesan Annual Appeal – Parish Update

Thank you to all who have contributed to the Diocesan Annual Appeal. Our parish goal is $26,000 and to date, $28,577.99 has been contributed or pledged. 40.61% of the pledge cards mailed by the diocese have been returned, including several taken from the rack. 253 of 623 have donated or pledged. $25,806.99 has already been given and an additional $2,771 pledged. Currently, we are at 110% of our goal contingent on all pledges being redeemed. 75% of the money contributed in excess of our goal will be rebated to our parish. As of February 20th, the Scranton Diocese has received $4,875,567 in outright donations or pledges. The figure represents 97.5% of the diocesan goal. Pledge cards are on the table in the church vestibule for anyone who wishes to contribute. Gifts to the Appeal should be made by June and pledges should be redeemed by that time.

Annual Appeal Supplement Envelope

The Diocese wanted us to put this into our packet when we were not at our goal. We have now attained our goal. If you are currently fulfilling a pledge, keep sending the money to the Diocese and do not use this envelope. This envelope is basically for those who have not contributed who may wish to now.
