Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
It is time for our annual Catholic Share Appeal (CSA). I ask that you prayerfully consider participating in this year’s appeal. The CSA funds many important Diocese-wide ministries that no one parish could provide, for example, Catholic Deaf Community, The Twelve Basket, Priesthood, Permanent Diaconate, Youth Formation/Support, retirement for the priest and so on. The ministries that benefit from CSA are fully identified in the CSA brochure found in the back of the church.
Bishop Kihneman has asked each parish to provide a share to this important Diocesan appeal (please see Bishop Kihneman’s video message below). Our parish share is $15,891 for St. Ann and $1,595 for Our Lady of Chartres. Every dollar over and above that amount comes back to our parish in the form of a rebate. We hope you can see it in your heart to make a CSA donation to support the diocesan ministries, and through rebates to provide funds to our church for different project.
Thank you for your generosity.
