The 2017 Sharing God’s Blessings Annual Appeal runs simultaneously with the We Are Living Stones campaign.
Why Two Campaigns? We are Living Stones is a 4-year-long campaign that aims at adding funds to an existing endowment. The endowment will generate interest each year that will be used by the Archdiocese to fund its operating expenses (such as those related to seminaries, Catholic schools, retired priests, Catholic charities, etc.). 50% of all the monies collected above the Works of Mercy goal is sent back to the parish.
The funds collected with the Sharing God’s Blessings Annual Appeal are not added to the endowment but used completely each year by the Archdiocese. Our parish goal for the Sharing God’s Blessings Annual Appeal has been substantially reduced this year to $28,500.00! The parish will receive 62% of all funds raised above the goal, which will be used for our operating expenses. Please, consider participating in the campaign. Even a one-time donation of any amount will count! Please, check the VIDEO of the campaign HERE.
