2020 Diocesan Appeal

Hear His Voice

Hear His Voice is the theme for the 2020 Diocesan Appeal. We are all called to follow the example of Jesus, putting our faith into action by what we say and do. This pandemic has challenged all of us to explore and practice our faith in sometimes new and strange ways. Still we need to ask for your support of this year’s Diocesan Stewardship Appeal.

It is through your generous gift to the 2020 Diocesan Appeal that we can continue to bring the love of Jesus to those in need and teach the faith to young and old alike. That work takes many forms in many different diocesan ministries. Marriage preparation, promoting human dignity and respect for life, youth ministry, and vocations are just some of the diocesan ministries and services we support through this Appeal. All equally important.

Our goal this year for our parish is $150,447.00. Please remember that whatever we raise beyond this goal returns to our parish. Because of the pandemic, we cannot do an in-pew appeal but your gift is extremely important for us to be able to attain our goal. Whatever we do not raise will have to come out of the Sunday contributions. In this time of reduced revenues that would be especially burdensome.  

If you plan to make your gift by credit card or automatic withdrawal from your bank account, you can do so by visiting: http://www.rockforddiocese.org/donate to donate easily and securely.

This year The CARES Act offers givers the ability to make a $300 donation even if you do not itemize your deductions that will reduce your taxable income. Please consider a contribution to this important cause, we need your help.

Thank you for your support as we participate in living the Church’s mission to be a witness of compassion and mercy to those in need.
