Archbishop’s Charities and Development Drive (ABCD)

Our church is a place to pray, to give thanks, to mourn and to celebrate. A place for us all to unite—in need and abundance—to have mercy, lift each other up and ease pain and suffering. A place people turn to in their time of need. We are all instruments of God’s mercy and peace. One church, one family uniting to help those in need!

Our Parish Goal is lower this year ($74,883.00)! So far we’ve received in cash and pledges over $21,000.00.

If you have yet to respond to this year’s ABCD, please join us by making a gift now. You can obtain a pledge envelope from the parish office or you can make a gift online at www.isupportabcd.org.

Thank you for all that you do and the spirit in which you do it, and to all of our Parish members for your wonderful Stewardship over the past year.
