You just saw the video message from Archbishop Vigneron asking you to give your support to the 2011 Catholic Services Appeal. I urge you to help our parish reach our target as we do our part to support the mission and the good works of the Archdiocese of Detroit.
This week you will be receiving in the mail a donation card and envelope along with literature describing this year’s appeal. Next weekend is CSA weekend throughout the Archdiocese. I ask you, if at all possible, to make your donation or pledge next weekend. If you did not donate last year please help us this year. If you donated last year, please consider raising your gift this year. If you are a regular visitor to our parish and would like to help us out, it will be greatly appreciated. It makes things difficult for me when we do not reach our target (this year’s target is 118,010). I have to focus attention on the CSA when there are a lot of other things I could be doing at the parish and school level.
So in the spirit of sharing what we have and realizing a certain responsibility that we share as Catholics in the mission of the Church, I ask you to be generous to the CSA and help me and most importantly our parish and Archdiocese.
