Archdiocesan Annual Appeal 2008: Together in Mission - A Time for Reflection

This week you are asked to read and reflect upon the Together in Mission materials in the bulletin today. Those of you who receive the archdiocesan newspaper The Tidings will receive more information about the campaign in this week’s edition.

Together in Mission provides substantial financial support to parishes and schools in less affluent areas of Los Angeles and other areas of the archdiocese. These parishes and schools provide education, ministry and a Catholic presence for tens of thousands of people.

Sometimes it is difficult to envision how your pledge can help so many people, but it does. To see how, please review the materials and read the statements of those whose parishes and schools receive support.

The theme of the campaign is “See the Bounty of the Lord” Psalm 27:13. Together in Mission provides an opportunity to show our concern for those served by the parishes and schools that need your financial support.

If you received your pledge form in the mail, complete it and mail it back or bring it to Mass next weekend. Also, we will conduct our annual Together in Mission in-pew pledge process at all Masses next weekend and the following weekend.

As always, what you give should be given in gratitude for what God has given to you.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration and generous response.
