This week, you will be receiving your annual invitation to join with hundreds of thousands of Catholics in Rhode Island and participate in the annual Catholic Charity Appeal. The appeal supports the ministry of the Catholic Church in Rhode Island, bringing much needed assistance to people throughout our state. Please use the pledge cards and return envelopes in this mailing as your 2018 response. In the past, the parish has sent its own mailing, in addition to that which comes directly from the Diocese of Providence.
This year, we will not double the effort, because it doubles the cost of printing and postage, which could be going directly to charities, agencies, and people in need. More about this year’s appeal in next week’s bulletin!
