2018 ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL
Goal for Ascension Church: $40,711.00
“Answer the Call”
This week begins the 2018 Annual Catholic Appeal.
Our Church recently received a check in the amount of $6,000. from the Diocese, which represent the monies received in excess of our goal for last years appeal. We thank all who have participated with a gift to the 2017 Appeal. In the coming weeks, every family will be invited to participate in this appeal and prayerfully consider a pledge.
The Annual Catholic Appeal seeks to raise a minimum of $8 million to provide programs and ministries through the Diocese and support the local efforts of parishes like ours.
The work and services made possible through your donation to the Annual Catholic Appeal help people in Brooklyn and Queens in ways that no one parish can alone.
