In order to reach our $150,000 goal for this year we still need to raise $42,666.36 from our generous parishioners.
This weekend after mass, our volunteers will be here to receive your pledges and thereafter every 1st weekend of each until the end of the year.
Remember that at this point, all contributions now come back directly to our Parish. Thank you to all parishioners who are making this possible!
