Great news! As of this afternoon, we have reached our parish goal for the Bishop’s Annual Appeal! We have now received $150,995.00 in pledges toward our goal of $148,468.34. Great work everyone, and a huge thank you to all who have submitted their pledges so far!
This year’s Our Lady Appeal will focus on replacing some of our HVAC units for the church building—one unit costs about $82,000. Any additional funds are planned to go toward audio-visual equipment (such as high-quality video cameras and sound recording tools), which will help us adapt to some of the more permanent effects of the Coronavirus outbreak and reach our parishioners in new, exciting ways.
Now that we have reached our goal for the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, 100% of additional gifts to the BAA will come straight back to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, tax-free, toward the Our Lady Appeal. So if you haven’t pledged yet, now is the time to do so!
Thank you to all of our parishioners and community members who help to make the BAA and OLA a success for our parish. Your generosity, especially in these difficult times, is sincerely appreciated. God bless you!
