THANK YOU to all who contributed, and a very special thanks to our appeal chairpersons, Christopher & Kara Pride.

Please make you gift soon. Donation/Pledge envelopes are available at the doors of the church or you can go online at www.providencediocese.org. Please make checks out to “Catholic Charity Appeal.”.
