Thank you for your patience as we launch this year’s campaign.  The efforts of the Hope Appeal allow very important ministries to continue throughout the Diocese of Syracuse, including the formation of seminarians like Joe Ryan who is spending the year with us.  The funds we raise support also support Marriage Preparation – including that of Mike Heins, a parishioner who will be married next weekend.  It is great when our efforts hit close to home.  There is also something wonderful about never meeting those who benefit from our generosity…on this side of heaven anyways.  Our parish goal of $64,344 will make a big difference in the lives of others. Please prayerfully consider how you can share of your first fruits.
