Bishops Appeal Update

17 May 2014 by SHRCChurch, No Comments »

2014 SHC BA 35 Percent of Goal (Rev1)The Bishop’s Appeal of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany was envisioned 60 years ago by the Most Reverend William A. Scully, Bishop of Albany to financially support the growing services and ministries of the Church.

Ever since, thousands of people across the fourteen counties of our Diocese have come together each year to generously empower their parish’s contribution to support the work of the Church to help those in need and to keep our Catholic Faith alive and flourishing in our homes, schools and communities.

Today the mission of the Bishop’s Appeal remains the same as it was when it began, to financially empower the Church to serve all the people of God, regardless of belief. What is different today is that the needs are greater than ever before.

Sacred Hearts response to the 2014 Bishops Appeal is off to a good start!  To date we have received 92 pledges for a total of $26,070.

We are hoping and praying for full participation from the Sacred Heart parish. Please be as generous as you can, and please continue to send in your pledges!  Thank you.
