THANK YOU FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
During 2019, we were able to raise a record $204,000 through our Distinguished Diocesan Benefactors (DDB) program. Because of your great generosity, we are able to sponsor 6 seminarians, help numerous missions and established parishes, and fund our record-attended Youth Ministry programs.
In addition to DDB, we have been able to raise $119,000 in donations and pledges towards St. Andrew's Camp's $300,000 New Building Project.
Thank you for making such a huge difference! -- May God bless and keep all of you in His loving care always!
With deep gratitude, sincere love and humble prayers,
