“Shining the Light of Christ” 2020 Annual Appeal
The 2020 Annual Appeal “Shining the Light of Christ” has begun. By now you may have received a letter from Cardinal Tobin inviting you to make a gift to the Appeal. We encourage all of you to look it over and prayerfully consider making a pledge!
“This past year’s goal was $65,532 and you raised $79,591. Congratulations on such a charitable job well done. This year our goal for the Annual Appeal is $72,279. If you have not received materials in the mail, then please pick up a brochure from the Narthex or from the kiosks. Always, thank you for allowing that light of charity to shine so well here at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church.” -Fr. Mark
The Archdiocese of Newark states that the overall goal for the 2020 Annual Appeal is $8.3 million. However, the needs of the Archdiocese of Newark far exceed this number. Gifts to the Annual Appeal will be to the benefit of the following programs and ministries: Proclaiming the Gospel ($1 million), Passing on the Faith ($2.9 million), Caring for the Poor and Vulnerable ($2.3 million) and Forming Future Priests and Supporting Retired Clergy ($2.1 million).
