A gift to the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal will touch the lives of many in a very positive way. The Annual Appeal provides critical funding for the many programs and ministries of the Archdiocese. As you review the work enabled by your contribution to the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal, please reflect on God’s gifts to you. He has given you all that you have. Your gifts to our parish, to the Archdiocese, and to the work of the Church throughout the world should be given in gratitude for the continuing gifts that God gives you.
If you received your pledge form in the mail, please complete it and mail it back. For those of you that did not receive a mailing or have not had time to respond to it, pledge cards will be available in the back of the church.
Our parish receives 25% of each dollar raised until we reach our goal of $144,300. Last year, the average gift at Sacred Heart was $253. Please prayerfully consider a pledge of this amount or greater. After we reach goal, 50% of all over goal dollars are returned to us. This year, the rebates will help us provide tuition assistance to parishioners with children in our school, to assist our sister parish, St. Ann in Baltimore, and to lend a helping hand to parishes in Mexico and Colombia.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration and generous response.
