Archdiocesan Annual Appeal 2007: Together in Mission

This is Commitment Weekend. I urge all of our parishioners to help in this vital work of charity and concern for others.

The funds raised by Together in Mission enable parishes and schools in low income areas of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to continue their ministry and mission.

Each parish participates in their annual appeal and each parish is assessed a goal, the amount of which is based on the income of the parish. St. Bernard’s goal for this year is $35,912. Our parish school is blessed this year by receiving $25,000 from Together in Mission, for which we are very grateful.

The funds collected by Together in Mission are used only to provide help for those parishes and schools, designated by the committee of clergy, religious and laity that oversees the distribution of the funds.

Please make a pledge today, be it great or small, but let it reflect your charity and generosity. Pledge envelopes are in the pews.

Thank you.
