2021 Annual Appeal – Archdiocese of Newark




February 14th will be our Pledge and Collection Weekend. Thank you to those parishioners who have already made their gift to the 2021 Annual Appeal. Will you join your fellow parishioners in supporting this effort that strengthens many important programs and ministries across the Archdiocese of Newark?

Our goal of $99,856 can only be achieved through YOUR generosity! Under the new Archdiocese guidelines, if a parish does not reach their goal the balance must be made up in the 2022 parish operating budget year. If you have not yet made a gift, there will be pledge forms available at the doors of the church, or you can visit https://www.rcan.org/sharing. Please be sure to credit our parish if you donate online. Your gift will truly make a difference.

Thank you for your prayers and support.


Final Weekend!
