Bishops Appeal Update

23 May 2014 by SHRCChurch, No Comments »

2014 SHC BA 52 Percent of GoalGifts made to the Bishop’s Appeal provide 70% of the support needed for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany’s diverse ministries and programs to operate in the current fiscal year. Those who benefit from your gifts to the Bishop’s Appeal include:

People who are homeless, living in despair, physically or emotionally challenged; Senior citizens in their final years needing care, companionship, love and dignity;Young people in Catholic Schools and Religious Education Programs;Men and women called to a vocation to the priesthood or consecrated life; Families whose lives have been wracked by poverty, domestic violence and substance abuse; Young mothers who need help raising their children and finding a job; Those seeking to serve in the diaconate or as lay ministers; Those of us who are seemingly at the end of their rope.

The Bishop’s Appeal also serves to assist your local parish by providing support services such as technical support, financial guidance, and training individuals for parish ministry.

Thank you to all who have thus far contributed or pledged to Sacred Heart’s Response to this year’s Bishop’s Appeal assessment of $73,523.  We are a little more than half way to our goal with 140 gifts and a total of $38,625 in support.

Please continue to send in your pledges either in the offertory collection or by mail. We are hoping and praying for full participation from the parish. No gift is too small.
