2021 CSMA COMMITMENT WEEKEND MARCH 6-7
This weekend, every parish in the diocese will be participating in CSMA. This annual collection supports the ministries and agencies in our diocese whose scope of service could not be duplicated by an individual parish. Our parish participation goal for the appeal is 179 households and our financial target is $11,570 ($288 lower than last year). You will have an opportunity to make your pledge or gift at Mass this weekend. If you do not receive a pledge card in the mail or forget to bring it, please use one of the reply envelopes that will be available as you exit church. If you are unable to attend Mass in person, please return your pledge card to the parish office. No gift is too great or too small. Please be as generous as you are able.

CRS RICE BOWLS
Drought has become a big problem across El Salvador, making it difficult for farmers to produce enough crops to support their families. But new farming techniques and a new generation of young farmers, are making a difference. How can you support young people in your community and around the word. Visit crsricebowl.org to learn more.
