This year’s Annual Catholic Appeal theme is “Neighbor Helping Neighbor.” Materials should arrive in your mailbox in the days to come. There are more than 40 agencies within the diocese (including the Newman Catholic Center) that benefit from your donation, no matter what the amount. It is imperative that we support the Appeal in any way that we are able so that our brothers and sisters in need will have a warm bed, a hot meal, clothing and so much more. While dollars are important to this campaign, as a parish, participation is key. The goal for this year’s campaign is an increase in parish participation. Your donation will bring us closer to our goal of 100% participation from the community of the Newman Center.
