January 17 – 2017 – As the Christmas season winds down and preparations are underway for the 2017 Annual Pastoral Appeal, it is important to take a moment to celebrate our achievement in 2016! Donations to the 2016 Annual Pastoral Appeal (APA) have spiked above $10 million for the first time in our diocesan history!
Donations include more than $9.8 million paid to date from almost 30,000 households. Special congratulations go out to the 25 parishes across the Diocese that exceeded their individual goal this year.
Thanks to all who support our diocesan the ministries and programs with their donations to APA – you truly “Open the Door to Mercy” for thousands in our 5 county area!
