Supporting Our Mission Together

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I cannot express my deep appreciation for your generous outpouring of support in last year’s Annual Diocesan Appeal. We not only made our goal but exceeded it by $101,954! Your tremendous generosity will continue to help offset the much-needed capital improvements for the aging facilities at St. Nicholas School. This faith-filled community continues to amaze me as you have been exemplars of our Bishop’s theme: Supporting Our Mission Together!

Our Diocesan and Parish goal for this year’s Annual Diocesan Appeal (ADA) is $395,000. The ADA funds those services that parishes need but cannot provide for themselves, such as Seminarian Formation (future Priests), Youth and Young Adult Ministries, Catechetical training and resources, Catholic teacher training, Hospital ministry, The Valley Catholic, and the Bishop’s office.

All funds raised above this amount will come back to benefit our community directly. All the proceeds raised above our goal will continue to support our beloved St. Nicholas School in an effort to help offset the much-needed capital improvements.

Aware of everyone’s unique financial circumstances, a gift of any amount is truly valued and appreciated. As always, I am grateful for your generous participation in this year’s ADA, and for your constant generosity to our parish. Please be assured of my continued prayers.

Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. John L. Poncini, Pastor
