Next weekend our parish will take part in Pledge Sunday for the Bishop’s Annual Stewardship Appeal. [Yes, we are doing it a week earlier than other parishes because our 32nd Annual Cathedral Festival is next week.] Many of you have already received your pledge cards and information about this year’s goals in the mail. I want to encourage you to complete your pledge card and mail it back as soon as possible OR to come prepared to make your pledge at Mass. As well, please continue the pray the Stewardship Appeal Prayer that is printed in today’s bulletin.
Last year the Diocese set a goal for the Cathedral Parish that 375 families make pledges to the BASA. In 2016 we had 354 families pledge over $141,000. This year our goal is to have 400 families make pledges. So, please consider how you and your family can help Bishop Estevez in his responsibility to the Family of God in the Diocese of St. Augustine.
