2018 Catholic Services Appeal
Our parish is now conducting the 2018 Catholic Services Appeal for the
18 Collective Ministries of the Archdiocese that no one parish can support on its own. The CSA recognizes
each parish itself as a ministry integral to the daily life of the Archdiocese. Our parish really is our second home; we see our brothers & sisters in Christ every week as together we celebrate the Mass. It is also where we are prepared & supported as disciples to go forth to preach the Gospel. Thus, our parish is a
benefited ministry of the CSA; we receive 25% of the dollars we collect in our parish if we reach our parish
goal. Please prayerfully consider making a pledge to help us reach our goal! Please go to
learn more about the ministries supported by the 2018 Catholic Services Appeal. Thank you.
Family Fun Night
• 5:00 - 7:00pm • PACE Center

, Marilyn & Chris Christensen, for your years of service on the Stewardship/Development Committee! Chris & Marilyn have served on the Archdiocese of St. Paul &
Minneapolis Stewardship Committee and the OLL Stewardship/Development Committee since 1996! Chris & Marilyn said, “It has been an honor and a privilege to serve on these Committees over the years. We met and worked with many dedicated faith-filled priests and parishioners who shared the same values as we did. This ministry helped us to grow in our own faith life and has been very rewarding.”
