Combining the latest statistics released by the Diocese of Metuchen June 1 with our own in-pew totals from last weekend, our new pledged amount raised for the Bishop’s Annual Appeal stands at $33,949.50, which is now nearly $1,000 over our goal of $33,000. Congratulations to all who have pledged or contributed to the total.
Actual raised funds now stand at $32,033, or a little less than a thousand dollars shy of the $33,000 goal for dollars raised.
Our next in-pew weekend will be June 19-20, when we may be over both goals by then.
Our thanks to parishioners Deacon Edgar Chaves and Seminarian Flavio Rojas, who spoke at all six Masses last weekend on behalf of the Appeal. Luz-Helena Escobar and Deacon Chaves will speak in June.
