2018 St. Paul Parish Annual Appeal

For the support of St. Paul Parish

The St. Paul Annual Financial Report, prepared by our Parish Finance Council, will be arriving at the homes of all registered parishioners this week.  (You can read the report now by clicking the link above.) The mailing also includes your 2018 St. Paul Parish Annual Appeal  pledge card.

This past weekend, Fr. Jim spoke at all Masses to announce the launch of the Appeal and to talk about the mission of our parish and the importance of St. Paul Parish in our spiritual lives.  Please be sure to take a few minutes to watch this video, also shown at all Masses, in which parishioners speak from their hearts about our parish.  

The parish needs your financial support in order that our ministries within the parish and the many outreach efforts beyond our parish can continue to thrive and to grow. As Fr. Jim noted this past weekend, the good news is that our income has increased modestly, and our budget deficit has decrease slightly, year over year. However, several years of operating deficits have negatively impacted our cash balances and reserves. Our collaborative staff has been working diligently to contain costs and manage the budget, but in order to operate once again on a break-even basis, we need everyone's help to increase both our weekly Offertory and Annual Appeal. Increasing these collections by just 10% would position St. Paul Parish well for the future.

Please spend some time prayerfully reflecting upon your contribution to the 2018 St. Paul Parish Annual Appeal.  The Annual Appeal mailing includes both a Parish Annual Appeal pledge card and a return envelope (additional reports and envelopes are available at the back of the church.) Your pledge card/donation may be returned by mail, dropped at the Parish Office, or placed in a collection at Mass (please be sure to note "Annual Appeal" on your check.)  

Our Online Giving program can also be used for contributions to the Annual Appeal. You do not need to set up an account - anyone can make a one-time donation using the "Quick Give" feature. Just click this link and select the Quick Give option. 

Thank you for your continued support of St. Paul Parish!
