Old St. Patrick Oratory again proves its generosity

In its desire to support our beloved Bishop Finn, Old St. Patrick has demonstrated its mighty generosity in this year's "Bishop's Annual Appeal". We are one of the smallest parishes in the diocese with just 87 registered households and thus we were assigned a rather modest goal for this campaign. But, not satisfied just to reach the minimum, our parishioners have given or pledged 255.91% of our goal according to today's Catholic Key. This nearly doubles our percentage of goal from last year with many more families giving this year. 

Overall, the campaign is doing pretty well considering the difficult financial circumstances of our country and the Kansas City area. But, there is still time for others in our parish to step up to the challenge of assisting the Bishop in his appeal. You can make a contribution by going to the diocesan website and contributing online or by mailing your check to: The Bishop's Annual Appeal, P. O. Box 419037, Kansas City, MO 64141. Be sure to indicate that you are a member of Old St. Patrick.
