Next Sunday will be commitment Sunday for the 2006 Archdiocesan Annual Appeal, Together in Mission.

It is the fund that literally keeps open the doors of 32 parishes and 46 parish schools. Each parish in the archdiocese, including those who receive monies from Together in Mission, participate in this appeal. Each parish is assessed 10 percent of its ordinary income. Our assessment this year is $35,359.00.

All our families and wage earners are asked today to make a generous pledge to contribute to Together in Mission over six months. I am very grateful to all those who responded to last year’s annual appeal. Thanks to your generosity, we surpassed our parish goal. I appeal to those who have not taken part in the past to make a pledge for this year.

Come aboard! Let it be known far and wide that St. Bernard’s is a generous faith community.
