Faithfully, Fr. Pat WalkerThe 2016 Bishop’s Ministry Appeal is underway. It was encouraging to hear from some parishioners who had already mailed back their pledge envelopes to the Diocese. They had written their checks to the Bishop's Ministry Appeal Trust so they were confident that their money would only go to the ministries of our Diocese. These ministries include Religious Education which is quite large at St. Anthony’s (over 1,000 students). Someone else told me that she would do her pledge on-line at stocktondiocese.org/BMA. She like the convenience of a secure website that would take only about 5 minutes of her time to make a pledge or one-time gift of $40 a month over an 8 month period or $320 will help the parish to reach and exceed it’s goal ($147,000). Some will be able to give more and some will give less. A gift of any size is appreciated.
Faithfully, Fr. Pat Walker
The Bishop's Ministry Appeal will begin on the weekend of February 6th and 7th, with our Parish goal being $147,000. Last year, we met and exceeded our goal and we were able to purchase a beautiful grand piano and new albs for our altar servers. We also purchased a chasuble with the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, for the priests to wear .
This year, any money over goal will be used to remodel the girls restroom at our school. This restroom is not only used by the school, but by our religious ed department and the many adult ministries that meet in the evenings.
We want to thank you in advance for your prayerful pledge of support.
