Catholic Services Appeal

Here in our Archdiocese, each of us in invited to help support the   ongoing ministries of the Church beyond our own parish of St. Patrick. This year is no exception. Because of the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, Archbishop Vigneron moved the annual Catholic Services Appeal from last Spring to this September 2020. We have been told that the Archdiocese has cut their staff and other personnel expensed by 45%. Everyone is being asked to help deal with the serious financial difficulties of our Church of Detroit because of COVID-19.

As in the past years, we are now recommneding that every parish family consider an annual contribution of $300.00 over ten months, i.e., a down payment of $30.00 and an additional $30.00 for the remaining nine months for this year's Catholic Services Appeal. We are asking for "equal sacrifice-not necessarily an equal gift".

Any CSA contribution in excess of our CSA target-which is lower than last year-will remain in our parish for our own needs. This year, this could really help our parish, as our loss of weekly offertory income is about 22 percent. Know that you and all of our parishioners are in our prayers. May we continue to pray for and to support one another in these difficult times.

I am praying that the Lord will bless you abundantly for your personal sacrifice and generous response. May the Lord bless you for your willingness to offer your fair share in assisting in our 2020 Archdiocean CSA Appeal.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

Rev. Thomas L. Meagher, Pastor
