From the day of Pentecost, the saving mission of the Church continues uninterrupted despite challenges both from outside and from within. Each baptized person, in his or her capacity, is responsible for proclaiming the Gospel of the Lord to the world.
In this mission of evangelization, the Church needs also material support to be able to fulfill her goal of bringing Christ’s saving work into the world. This was already true in the early Church, when collections were taken by the Apostles to help Christian communities in their mission but also to support members in need.
The 2023 Diocesan United Catholic Appeal once again gives us the opportunity to financially support the many different ministries of the bishop’s office and the local Church.
Please support generously the Catholic Appeal so, as a local Catholic community, we may continue to bring Christ into the lives of our parishes and the world.
Thank you for your previous, generous support of the UCA at St. Michael’s parish and let’s make an effort together to reach this year’s goal of $50,157.71
To contribute to the UCA please use the monthly envelopes included in your packet from Cathedral Corp or use our on-line giving program, with recurring donation, located on our parish website and select UCA funds.
Sincerely in Christ,
Fr. Andrew Knop, omi
