PARTNERS IN CHARITY 2019
The 2019 Partners in Charity Appeal is now on-going. Once a year, we commit ourselves to this ongoing work. We reflect on God’s great generosity, and respond with generous giving of our own. With your support, faith in action is visible every day in the compassionate outreach of Catholic Charities, to the least among us; in the prayerful witness of our retired priests and the joy of new priestly vocations; to the many diocesan ministries and programs that heal, teach and care for others. This year our goal once again is $18,800. As of April 15th we are at 50% of our goal. In addition to giving through the envelopes found on the parish pews, and on-line giving at partners-charity.net, new this year is the Text giving option. Our parish Holy Cross will receive credit. Text the word donate to 84576.
