The Catholic Charities Annual Appeal is continuing. The goal for the Appeal 2021 is $10 million. Earlier this week Catholic Charities reported that over 84.17% of the goal has been achieved raising almost $8,416,935.21. We have been a very integral part of the success of the Catholic Charities Appeal in the past and we continue to be so this year.
St. Louis parishioners should be proud that we are able to be a part of the success of the Catholic Charities Appeal. We are well on the way in helping Catholic Charities meet their goal. This year, once again, we are close to surpassing our own personal goal of $116,089.99. All we need to make our goal is $2,462.01. If you have not yet had an opportunity to help Catholic Charities this year, there is still time to do so. All of us are to be congratulated for the outpouring of generosity that has been demonstrated in the past year, this year and over the years to assist our neighbors in need.
Because of your work, your prayers and your generosity Catholic Charities has been blessed with the ability to continue its mission to our most needy neighbors. People in need across the diocese will be assisted because of your faithfulness.
The Appeal runs until the end of June. If you have not donated to the 2021 Catholic Charities Appeal, there is still time to make a contribution. On behalf of all you serve Catholic Charities, thank you very much.
