This is a mailing from Bishop Stika asking for a generous pledge to this year’s Appeal. Your gift not only funds many of the operations of the Diocese of Knoxville, it funds services that are of great help to the ministries here in our parish. This year, the theme of the Appeal is “Answering His Call”. Each Appeal gift enables the Diocese to build up the kingdom of God throughout East Tennessee. God gives us all that we have. Even when we want to believe that our successes are self-made, we know that it is God who has blessed us abundantly with all we have. He is always giving to us. His grace is always there for us. One way that we can show our gratitude is by offering our generous financial support to our parish and to our Diocese and to the Church throughout the world. The gifts that we give enable ministries, education and services that touch thousands of lives. Our parish goal is $23,100. With your support, we can reach and exceed this goal. Please answer Bishop Stika’s request and make a generous pledge. All pledges can be paid in ten installments. Thank you in advance for your support.

(Parents & their 7th or 9th graders are also invited.) It will bring you together with other parish families to learn about love, life, chastity and God’s gift of sexuality. You and your child will have the chance to enhance your communication skills, discuss true worth, guidelines for future dating and lots more. Here, one parent shares what they liked most about the program, “It opened a door for me that wasn’t open before between my daughter and me. I definitely feel more comfortable and confident discussing chastity with her.” Real Love & Real Life is a fun, unique, interactive program presented by Family Honor, Inc.
