2017 Collection For National Needs

This year we have the opportunity to live the gospel
through the annual National Needs collection. The
collection is this weekend and you will find envelopes in
the back of the church. You can return your gift anytime
this year.

The diocese will divide your contribution, as you indicate,
among the following causes:

  • Catholic Communications Campaign
  • Catholic Home Missions
  • Catholic University of America
  • Campaign for Human Development
  • Black and Indian Missions

Firstly, we give because it is an extension of our
stewardship from All Hallows parish to the rest of the
Church. Also, just as we give to renew and grow the
ministries of our parish, we cannot fail to reflect on the
blessedness of the Church that surrounds us.

As a Catholic Community we are blessed with a 58-year
history and tradition of prayer, education and service. Our
Catholic heritage is so much more and we need to give
thanks for that blessing.

We are called to be faithful to the vision and message of
the gospel to continue Christ’s work on earth. Our
financial stewardship to those in need continues in good
times and bad. It is a commitment to serve that we
witness through the financial support we give next week
and beyond. A sign to the Lord that we are present and a
witness to His word in the gospel we embrace.
