Annual Diocesan Appeal 2021: All in the name of Jesus
Thanks to all who made a pledge to the Annual Diocesan Appeal.
We have received pledge cards. A gift to the ADA, no matter how great or small can go a long way. A pledge of $10 or $20 a month can add up. Even a one-time gift is helpful to the cause. To those who have contributed, we are most grateful. If you have not yet made a gift to the ADA, we invite you to do so. There are pledge cards are still available. Every dollar raised to make our goal supports important diocesan services and every dollar raised over our goal will be kept in the parish to help us.
The 2021 Annual Diocesan Appeal is now underway in our parishes. Your support of this year’s Appeal ensures that essential charitable, educational and pastoral ministries of the Diocese of Peoria are continued and carried forward.
Thanks to all for your pledges to the Annual Diocesan Appeal. No gift is too small, and our parishes are trying to reach 100% participation. If you have not yet made a gift to the ADA, we invite you to do so today. Envelopes are still available. Every dollar raised to make our goal supports important diocesan services and every dollar raised over our goal will be returned to the parish to help us.
In May, after years of study, four men will be ordained to the transitional diaconate for the Diocese of Peoria. During their years of preparation for this vocation, they were supported by family and friends – and by everyone who made a gift to the Annual Diocesan Appeal. When you make a gift to the Appeal, you help meet the cost of priestly formation and education, since a portion of Appeal funds are used for this purpose. Please support our seminarians by making a gift to the Annual Diocesan Appeal next weekend.
Saint Nicholas Charity on the Wheel
Beginning in September, the "St Nicholas Charity on Wheels" van will start coming to the parking lot of St. Joseph in Marseilles on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. We chose this day to coincide with the Food Pantry distribution. The van distributes items that are not traditionally distributed by the Food Pantry but are often needed: blankets, towels, school supplies, socks, gloves, baby clothes, diapers, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, etc. There's actually a Wish List on Amazon for them, St Nicholas Charity on Wheels, click on Amazon Wish List to view it.
