As of today, seven months into the current Catholic Service & Ministry Appeal (CSMA) year, 27 parishes have not yet reached half of their target goal. Our Parish goal is at 26% of its $11,858 goal set by CSMA. We have $8,732 remaining to meet our goal. I know you are aware of the wonderful work our diocesan agencies and departments do in serving the people of southern Illinois. These agencies and all those they serve are depending on us again this year. Please consider making a contribution in whatever amount you are able. Every gift is important, no matter the amount. Thank you so very much for your ongoing support, your consideration of this request and all you do.
Fr. Slawomir Ptak
