Catholic Services Appeal
Thank you to those who have given to the Catholic Services Appeal so far! For those who have not given yet, please consider doing so. No gift is too small, and our parish is trying to reach 100% participation. This program helps alleviate some of the issues that face the diocese today, such as the shortage of priests. The responsibility our parishes have to help provide diocesan services and ministries such as support for vocations and the education of seminarians is an answer to that challenge. Please see page 4 under “Sharing Our Treasures” to view our cluster parishes goals and what we have raised so far.
Online Giving to the CSA provides donors with a secure and easy way to make a gift to the Catholic Services Appeal. Your parish is automatically credited with your gift. Web addresses for each parish’s online giving page for the CSA are provided on page 4 under “Sharing Our Treasures.”
This year’s goals:
St. Anthony’s: $24,529
