    Over the years, more and more parishioners have chosen to support the Bishop’s Annual Appeal by making an on-line gift.  Simply go to www.2018appeal.org and follow the instructions.  You can either make a one-time gift or a pledge with monthly payments made automatically for your for your convenience.
    Whether it is a pledge, a one-time gift, or an on-line donation, your support is greatly needed.  Every single gift counts!  Please participate in the 2018 Appeal today!
    One of the benefits of giving to our Bishop’s Annual Appeal is the knowledge that the funds support important needs in Morris, Passaic and Sussex Counties.  This local connection means that you may be helping your next-door neighbor, your co-worker, the store owner you see each day as you shop in your community – perhaps even a family member.  In this context, when you give to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, you truly say:  Here I Am, Lord- Making a better life for my brothers and sisters in the area.  Please consider making a pledge today.
