2018 Catholic Appeal News!

Now is the time to consider what your pledge will be to the 2018 Catholic Appeal. Just as our weekly collection supports parish expenses, initiatives and programs, the Catholic Appeal helps fund services that are essential to both the parish and the greater Church community. The official commitment weekend of the Appeal is March 10th & 11th. If there are children at home, involve them in the process of making an Appeal pledge. That way the entire family can claim ownership of the pledge. For more information and to make an online pledge please visit www.bostoncatholicappeal.org.
