BISHOP’S APPEAL REPORT 2015 Bishop Gerald has sent out a letter and a folder describing the needs of the Eparchy and how the monies would be used to each of the member of our Cathedral. He is asking for $200 per household. Many of our people have been very generous and have given more and some due to limited finances give a little less. All members of the parish are expected participate in this drive. Cathedral Goal: $22,400.00 114 Households X $200 = $22,400.00 15 Paid up Pledges = $3,845 7 Pledges are on a payment schedule. Last Sunday we received pledges from Joseph & Jennifer Mikitish and John & Kathleen Wursta and Helen Furka. Only our paid up pledges are sent to the Chancery and Bishop Gerald will respond to you with a Thank you note. Have you planned to attend at least one Lenten Service a week during the Great Fast?
