We have reached our 2021 Catholic Appeal Goal!
I wish to both announce and thank all involved for helping St. Oscar Romero meet our Catholic Campaign goal. We have fallen short in recent years and this represents a positive turnaround. As parishes exceed their goal they receive an increasing share of the amount over goal. While not a significant amount this year, it is an accomplishment. I would like to express my appreciation to all who donated and to Bob and Ngoan Jones who served as this year’s campaign chairs.
In every assignment I have always encountered a bit of pushback against this fundraiser. I understand that some prefer to donate to their local parish. Nonetheless, it is important to recognize that the Archdiocese provides a number of important support services to all parishes, including ours. They were of much assistance during the height of the pandemic helping with financial, personnel and facilities matters. As importantly, there are a number of charitable enterprises that operate at the diocesan level. We should be proud of all that is accomplished by Catholic Charities and a host of other endeavors supported by this campaign.
Thanks again for your support.
