For those who’ve not yet had an opportunity to participate in this year’s Appeal, there is still time. Your gift donation is essential to ensuring that we may continue the Catholic Appeal ministries that serve the people in our archdiocese. The Archbishop’s office has sent a receipt and letter of thanks to each of those that have already contributed. Blessings to all.
