Annual Catholic Appeal
The 2023 Annual Catholic Appeal kicks off this weekend (April 29/30th).
We will have volunteers in the vestibule of the Church along with your ACA pledge cards the weekends of April 29/30 and May 6/7. Or through the weekdays in the parish office. If you are unable to give, we still ask if you will at least sign your pledge card?
The question has come up with ALL THINGS NEW,
why is the Archdiocese still doing this appeal? Simple answer: because the need is still so great. The Appeal helps various agencies/people in our Archdiocese. In 2022, our school of ASA at St. Rose received a $400,000 ACA grant. That grant helped keep tuition affordable while creating the best educational environment for our staff and students. Please consider giving to the Annual Catholic Appeal this year.
Our published goal for 2023 is: $39,128
Our challenge goal for 2023 is: $93,285
(this is the amount we raised last year)
Total raised to date: $5,989
Again, thank you for your gift to the ACA. No gift is too small. If you are unable to give, please take a moment and sign your pledge card.
