Annual Pastoral Appeal 2018

 

 

 

During the commitment weekend for the 2018 Annual Pastoral Appeal: Blessed are We, all are asked to join Bishop Parkes and all 81 parishes and missions of our diocese in making a pledge/gift for the benefit of our parish and, more importantly, the many in need throughout the five counties of our diocese. Every gift is valuable. Sometimes it is hard to envision how your one gift could make a difference in an organization the size of our diocese, but it does. Every Catholic family, in each parish, united, can advance the mission of Christ, loving and serving one another. In times of change and transition, our gifts from God may be more difficult to identify; but we must remember God blesses each of us every day and there is no limit to his mercy. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something. Our focus is not equal gift, but equal sacrifice.  Give a gift of hope to someone in need. Thank you in advance for continuing to support our parish and our diocesan faith community in so many ways.

Blessed are We!

Thank you!  Because of your generosity over the years, we have been able to help support the more extensive services the diocese offers that benefits St. Paul’s in many ways.

Our goal this year is $438,000, just slightly larger than last year.  You should have received your packet from the diocese by now.  If you have not, please call Nancy at 961-3023.  There are envelopes and information in the Narthex.  You can go to the St. Paul website, www.stpaulchurch.com to give online. 

Thank you so much for your support in the past.  We hope that you will support APA again this year.  And, if you have not given a gift to APA in the past, please prayerfully consider how you might be able to help out.  No gift is too small.

FATHER OF ALL,

You have entrusted your world to us as a gift. Awaken our praise and thankfulness for all that you have made. Give us the grace to nourish our relationships with You, ourselves, one another and all of creation. Help us to imitate your love for the human family by recognizing that we are all connected. Inspire us to protect all life and to prepare for a future filled with justice, peace, beauty and love. Lord, You breathe life into us. Guide us to live according to your vision. Stir us into action, that we will be a source of hope and life for the people of our generation and those who will follow. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we lift up this prayer to you, our Father, through Jesus Christ, your Son and our Lord. Amen.
