Diocese of Fresno Begins 50th Anniversary Year Celebration with the theme:
Siempre Adelante – Keep Moving Forward
With this special anniversary the Diocese will include the Annual Bishops Appeal. The Bishops appeal began back in 2005, however our parish did not solicit our parishioners to participate as we had begun our own campaign to begin our NEW CHURCH, therefore the parish paid our goal from the parish savings each year. This year we are reaching out to you to help fulfill this obligation. Any amount received over our obligation will be given directly back to our parish to use for our needs. To help reach this goal we will replace the monthly second collection for the new church with the Bishop’s Appeal. More detail information is available on the Pledge cards that maybe found at all church entrances and may be used if you wish to pay directly to the Diocese of Fresno.
50% of the Bishop’s appeal is earmarked for Seminarian/Vocations. They are the future of the Church. The balance will be divided equally between Youth and Young Adult Ministry and Family Life Ministry. We thank you in advance for your continued support and generosity to our parish and Diocese.
Please continue to keep our Diocese in prayer as we celebrate its Golden Anniversary. Special prayer cards may be found at the church entrances.
