DATE: January 6, 2014SUBJECT: 2014 Catholic Charities Appeal Reminders
Every parish should have received both the 2014 Catholic Charities Appeal Video on DVD and the Archbishop’s Audio message on CD. If you did not receive these, please let me know by Wednesday of this week so I can have additional copies made.
Many hours and much effort went into the filming and production of this generously donated Appeal Video. However, it has no value unless it is seen by the parishioners of our Archdiocese. Please, play the DVD of the 2014 Appeal Video at all Parish functions throughout the month of January. There is a link to the YouTube video on the Archdiocese website or use this link http://www.youtube.com/user/mobilearchdiocese. If you have an email distribution for your parish, the link above can be easily copied into an email with your own personal endorsement of Catholic Charities and sent to your parishioners. Social Media is another great way to distribute the video.
I look forward to seeing you all at the upcoming Deanery Meetings. A letter was sent to each of your Parish Chairs before Christmas, inviting them to the deanery meeting. It would be very effective if you would please follow up with a reminder call of the meeting next week. I have included the dates and locations as a reminder:
Mobile Sunday, January 12, 2014 7:30 p.m. St. Catherine of Siena Parish
Baldwin Tuesday, January 14, 2014 7:00 p.m. St. Patrick Parish
Montgomery Wednesday, January 15, 2014 6:30 p.m. St. Peter Parish
Dothan Thursday, January 16, 2014 6:30 p.m. St. Columba Parish
Feel free to call me at 251.434.1556 if you have any questions or if I can assist you in any way to ensure the success of the 2014 Catholic Charities Appeal.
Thank you for all you do every year to support the Catholic Charities Appeal. Your prayer, hard work and dedication have allowed so many ministries supported by Catholic Charities to imitate Christ by serving those in need physically, psychologically and spiritually.
May God bless you.
