Msgr. Tom’s Weekly Note – 1/26/24

As I announced at all Masses last weekend, the 2024 Annual Appeal has begun! You should have received an invitation in the mail from Cardinal Tobin to consider making a donation to support this year’s Annual Appeal.

Your support to the Annual Appeal helps us accomplish across the Archdiocese what we would not be able to do alone.

The Annual Appeal will fund essential programs and ministries at the heart of our Catholic mission in our four counties in the archdiocese.

Your donation is used in four key areas: proclaiming the Gospel, passing on the faith, caring for the poor and vulnerable, forming future priests and supporting retired clergy. For more details on these areas of support, please go to

Our Parish goal is $161,491.54 There are two financial benefits to our Parish if we achieve this goal. First, if we reach this goal in cash by June 30th, our Parish is eligible for relief on our fiscal obligations to the Archdiocese.

Second, if we go over goal in pledges as of June 30th, we will be eligible for a rebate, which comes back to our Parish, unassessed, to be used at our own discretion.

Please consider taking a step with me on this Stewardship journey by responding to the Archbishop’s invitation to support the Appeal, or you can make your commitment here at Mass on February 10-11, 2024 which will be our In-Pew Weekend. You can also make a gift online by going to .

Thank you for your time and consideration. I am grateful for your generosity. You are in my prayers. Please pray for the success of the Annual Appeal.

God Bless You,

Msgr. Tom
