Thank you to the 421 families who have pledged $133,749 to support the mission of the Church in our diocese through their commitment to the Pastoral Services Appeal. Now that we have passed our goal all additional gifts will go directly to support our parish. Participation, regardless of how large or small, is still very important. If you have not yet made your pledge, you may do so this weekend by placing your PSA envelope in the offertory basket at Mass or the Parish Office.
If you manage your bills online, we’re sure you’ll like giving to Holy Spirit Catholic Church online. It’s safe and secure, and you decide exactly when your gift is made and where it goes. Online giving let’s you set up a recurring pledge or a one-time gift to our offertory and special collections, so you’ll be able to give the way you want-even if you’ve forgotten your envelope.
