  1. Many of you received a letter from Bishop Knestout asking for your support of the 2020 Annual Appeal.  For those of you who did not receive a mailing or have not had time to respond to it, we will conduct our In-Pew pledge process at all Masses the next two weekends, February 29/March 1 & March 7/8.  In the spirit of the bicentennial, we are hopeful that all our parishioners will make a gift to the 2020 Appeal.  Thank you in advance for your support!
