Charity Fund Update


As of Friday, June 13, the Catholic Charity Fund Appeal had raised $7,415,117, or 90 percent of its 2008 goal of $8,200,000.

With less than three reporting weeks left until the close of the appeal, 62 parishes have now surpassed their goals. Another 21 parishes that have not yet reached goal have already raised more funds than last year.

The Stewardship & Development Office asks all pastors and parish lay leaders to make at least one more request from the pulpit asking parishioners to respond to the final mailing recently sent to all non-donors.
