The 2023 Archbishop’s Annual Appeal is now underway in our parish. Our goal is to engage our entire parish family in this year’s Appeal and to pray for the success of the Appeal, both here in our parish and across the three counties of the Archdiocese. We hope you can help us meet our parish goal of $317,000. If you would like to make a gift, please mail in your pledge card. You may also visit the Archdiocesan website at or call the Appeal Office at (800) 7812550. Keep in mind that an early pledge will allow you to best use the monthly payment plan. All funds contributed to the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal are used exclusively for the purposes outlined in the Appeal literature, which can be found here. No Appeal funds are ever used for legal fees or settlements.
The 2023 Archbishop’s Annual Appeal is integral to the mission and services of the Archdiocese of Hartford. As in the past, this year’s efforts will create new opportunities and expand existing services for those living and working within the Archdiocese of Hartford.
Additionally, the Appeal ensures the funding necessary so that our vital ministries, seminarians, retired clergy, catholic schools and agencies continue to thrive serving thousands throughout the Archdiocese. We are pleased with this year’s theme His Sacrifice, and ours !
Heavenly Father, we ask You to look kindly upon our archdiocesan family of faith. Help us to remember that we are called to love one another and to serve those in need. Your Son Jesus Christ has shown us the way. His perfect sacrifice on the Cross reveals Your infinite love and mercy. May this year’s Archbishop’s Annual Appeal, His Sacrifice, and ours, remind us of our vocation to serve and not to be served. May we walk in His footsteps, being compassionate to others and making our own sacrifices in order to minister to the needs of our neighbor. We make our prayer in His name who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. ~ Amen
