Catholic Sharing Appeal

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year! It is a season of new beginnings that brings a sense of hope when the flowers begin to bloom and the leaves on the trees once again turn green. It reminds each of us that after a cold winter, the promise of a warm, sunny day is on the horizon.

During the past year, each of us were presented with challenges, as well as additional time for pause and reflection. I found myself continuously thinking of, and praying for, our St. Francis de Sales Parish family. I watched many of you step up and make a difference in our community. People kept us moving forward by helping each other and provided hope each and every day. THANK YOU!

If you haven’t already, you will receive a letter from Bishop Brennan regarding the 2021 Catholic Sharing Appeal (CSA). Since 2007, the Appeal has supported parishes and ministries throughout the diocese and helped to fund shared ministries, such as youth and children’s ministries, Catholic education, Catechist training, and support for the poor and the most vulnerable. Funding provided by CSA in the past has helped us to make much needed repairs to our aging properties.

Today, I ask you to prayerfully consider joining me in making a gift to this year’s CSA. Our parish goal this year is $41,120.00 and we plan to use the funding we receive to add to St. Francis School’s Endowment Fund.  The principle is planted and bears a harvest that grows over time. Your support today can help us reach our goal and keep our school an effective instrument for Catholic education and evangelization for many years to come! You can make your gift securely online at dwc.org/csa.

Thank you for graciously, prayerfully, and generously living your Catholic faith each day, as we all grow in the grace of the Eucharist together. I am grateful for your generosity and for all you do for our parish and for those who need our support the most. I look forward to our journey of faith ahead!

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Paul J. Wharton
