Every year, we are given the opportunity to show our support of the ministries of the Diocese of St. Petersburg through our support of the Annual Pastoral Appeal.
When we think of the many ways God has blessed our parishes, families and ministries, we know that it is with generous hearts that we continue to support these efforts into the future. Please note the announcements that are in the bulletin in the upcoming weeks regarding St. Cecelia Parish’s commitment to this appeal. Last year, we exceeded our goal. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity. As you have been generous in the past, I know that you will be generous in the weeks and months to come.
Our diocese is undergoing a great time of renewal. As we join together to courageously live the Gospel, let’s continue to work together to make the presence of Jesus Christ more effectively known and experienced by all!
We also join together to begin the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity beginning January 18. May all disciples of Jesus work together for peace and harmony.
Thank you so much for all you do to make our parish and diocese true signs of Christs’ goodness and care in our area of Florida.
And let us continue to pray for one another.
