Thank you to so many of you for responding generously and quickly to the Annual Hope Appeal. The parish has benefitted in so many ways from the annual collection. The Diocesan Facilities team assisted us greatly in the HVAC and bathroom projects. The youth group attends annual conferences and the March for Life thanks to the organization of the Youth Office.

Our Faith Formation classes are strengthened by the network of directors and teachers that stretches across our diocese. Some of you have been visited by chaplains while hospitalized. That is just a quick list of some of the ways we benefit here at St. EAS. Think of how many others will benefit from your giving. That is truly lighting up the darkness! The eaves of our buildings will continue to be lit in 10% increments as a way of marking our progress to our goal of $63,000. May your donations continue to bring light to others in darkness.
