Annual Ministries Appeal
The Annual Ministries Appeal is still very much in pro- gress for this year. Many aspects of the operation of the Diocese of Monterey have no direct connection to the parishes. The Bishop coordinates a number of offices and ministries that are available to all the parishes and schools of the Diocese. This special appeal addresses these needed activities of any diocese. The registered parishioners have received information about the appeal in the mail. For those who haven’t received the brochure and response envelope, these are available in the rear of the church. We encourage ALL parishioners to participate as each one is able to par- ticipate. PLEASE MAKE ALL CHECKS PAYABLE TO THE DIOCESE OF MONTEREY AND RETURN ALL RESPONSE ENVELOPES TO THE PARISH OFFICE.
Parish Goal $27,300
