2019 Catholic Charities Appeal
Dear Friends In Christ,
We have officially closed the books on the 2019 Catholic Charities Appeal. St. Mary, Our Lady of the Isle Parish raised a grand total of $54,225. This was a 13% increase over last year’s total of $48,050! Across the entire Diocese of Fall River, St. Mary’s had the NINTH HIGHEST PERCENTAGE INCREASE in dollars raised for the appeal this year! That’s a great distinction in a year which saw mostly DECREASES in donations throughout the diocese.
While we have closed the books on THIS year’s Catholic Charities Appeal, we are still actively collecting new gifts and pledges for the carryover fund which acts as our “starting fund” for NEXT year’s appeal. If you would like to make a NEW donation or pledge to the 2020 Catholic Charities Appeal, we welcome your generosity.
Thank you so much for your support of the needy through the Diocese of Fall River’s Catholic Charities Appeal. Your generosity is making a tangible difference in the lives of many people.
Fr. John Kelleher
