2017 Annual Appeal

This year’s Annual Catholic Appeal has us reflect upon A Future Full of Hope: Passion for
our Faith, Promise for our Future, Care for our Community, and Love for our family. Please prayerfully consider giving to the needs of our Archdiocese as we conduct the 2017 Annual Catholic Appeal over the next four weeks.
Our witness speaker this year is Judy Jensen, who will be here next weekend to speak to us. Thank you if you have already made your gift to the Appeal! If you haven’t yet, please

Sunday contributions using online giving
When we do our weekly report on the Sunday gifts, it includes all mail-in bank checks, credit cards and EFT that the parish processes every 12th and 21st of the month, and online giving. Anyone can sign up for online giving by going here. You just need your parish (envelope) ID number to set up an account that you manage. Thank you to all for your stewardship of Treasure.
Please consider St. Francis of Assisi in you will. Thank you!
