The success of the Catholic Charities Mother's Day Appeal relies on the generosity of our parishioners. The Appeal is a critical component of Catholic Charities' operating budget.
With the extended pandemic restrictions in New York State, prudence dictates the in-pew Mother's Day Appeal unwise. Therefore, the 2020 Catholic Charities Mother's Day Appeal will be moved to Father's Day, June 21, 2020 in hopes we will be able to gather for Mass by that time. This information will be distributed via the North Country Catholic and the Diocesan website.
Please know that parishioners can still make online pledges on www.cathcharities.org. It is unclear whether a mass mailing, the third prong of the normal Appeal, will occur since the business used to assemble the mailing are closed.
Stay safe and well! Grace and peace,
Deacon James Crowley, Chancellor Roman Catholic Diocese of Ogdensburg
