Bishop Mueggenborg's Letter To Pierce Parishes

Transition Prayer

Prepared by Communication Sub-Committee

Heavenly Father,
We thank you for gathering us together
and calling us to serve as your disciples.

You have charged us through Your Son, Jesus, and his shepherds,
with the great mission of evangelizing
and witnessing your love to the world.

Send your Holy Spirit to guide us as we discern Your will
for the spiritual renewal of our parish communities. 
Give us strength, courage, and clear vision
as we use our gifts to serve You.

We entrust our parish families to the care of Mary, our Mother
and ask for her intercession and guidance as we strive to bear witness to the Gospel, celebrating the qualities of each faith filled community
and together building an engaging parish.

2021 - 2022 Annual Catholic Appeal

Begin May 2021 - End April 2022

Each year during the Annual Catholic Appeal campaign, we pause and consider all the great things that are accomplished in the name of Jesus!

This year our parish share of the Appeal is $42,190. We have raised a total of $11,475 so far towards our goal, and we have not yet heard from everybody.

If we exceed our goal, all payments above our share will come back to the parish in the form of a rebate to be used for building fence around Church facilities
Please be sure to turn in your pledge envelope today or donate online at .Thank you!

We pray for our Parish: that we may show love for one another in our support of the ministries and services funded by the Annual Catholic Appeal.
