2019 Bishop’s Annual Appeal
Help Build a Civilization of Love

To date, 344 parishioners have pledged $105,954 and paid $95,679. These generous pledges show great progress and put us at 61% of our parish goal of $173,000.

Our other goal is for every family to participate. If you have not contributed yet this year, we ask you to prayerfully consider donating to the Bishop's Appeal funding over 25 diocesan and parish ministries that reach a half million people. You can take a Bishop's Appeal envelope in the Church gathering space and return it with your pledge or one-time gift in the collection basket. The Diocese of Metuchen's home page,, also describes other ways to contribute including online and employer matching gifts.

Every gift, no matter the size, is important and greatly appreciated.
