Bishop's Annual Appeal Banquet - October 1, 2008

Approximately 500 parish leaders gathered at a downtown hotel ballroom Wednesday evening, October 1, 2008 as Bishop Finn hosted the kick-off of the Bishop's Annual Appeal. Several couples from Old St. Patrick were in attendance, including Gwen and Jim Gooch, shown in the photo above with Monsignor Bradley Offutt, Chancellor of the diocese.

The goal of this year's appeal is $1,950,000. And Old St. Patrick's assigned goal is $2,200.00. This seems like a more than reasonable goal for this year. Last year the Oratory exceeded our quota by a very nice amount. Parishioners across the diocese will be getting letters in the mail soon. The objectives of the campaign are extremely worthwhile, but also, we want to demonstrate to our dear Bishop Finn our support of his initiatives, in thanksgiving for all that he has done for us. Please be as generous as you can.
