Sunday, February 23 we will have the 2020 Catholic Service Appeal. This collection is the big collection for the Archdiocese which allows the Archdiocese to perform any number of ministries. These funds go to support the following 20 ministries:
Abria Pregnancy Resources, Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women, Campus Ministry – St. Paul’s Outreach, Deaf Ministry, Catholic Elementary School Support, Catholic High School Scholarships, Latino Ministry, Prison Ministry, Seminarian Tuition, Seminary Room and Board, Venezuela Mission, American Indian Ministry, Campus Ministry – Newman Center, Catholic Charities, Catholic Elementary School Scholarships, Office of Evangelization and Catechesis, Hospital Chaplains, Office of Marriage, Family and Life, Rachel’s Vineyard Twin Cities, Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Youth and Young Adult Ministries
If you would like to donate to this collection there will be envelopes in the pews which you can use for this purpose. The basket will only go around the Church once so you can place the envelopes with money in them, into the basket and the money will be forwarded on to the Archdiocese who will then divide it up among the various charities.
The parish goal is $22,981. This number is based upon 6% of the regular money given to the parish not included special collections and money given to the parish specifically for the building fund.
