July 28, 2016 – Summer is winding down, which means “back to school” and fall football is just around the corner. If your parish hasn’t yet reached goal for the Annual Pastoral Appeal (APA), there is no better time to “go for the goal!” And the Office of Stewardship and Development has prepared some new materials to help bring the message to your parishioners.
All new items maintain a consistent look and feel with this year’s theme, Open the Door to Mercy, and can be used in a variety of ways: as bulletin inserts, to develop articles or speaking points for in-pew presentation or as an informational piece to include in a parish-level targeted follow-up mailing to non-donors. Two new “Snap-shots” are available, providing a close look at the offices of Evangelization and Faith Formation. In addition, we have developed a specific set of sheets which focus on ministries at work in each of our 5 counties.
All new materials are available in both English and Spanish in PDF format.
And if you haven’t used our mini-ministry videos or are looking for more ministry specific inserts, all are still available. Click here to download any of our new pieces, and also access all materials available to assist you in reaching your parish goal for APA.
