Our Diocesan annual appeal is next weekend, February 18th and 19th. Many of you will be receiving a letter this week in the mail, or an email, where you can donate in advance online. Or you’ll have the opportunity to donate next weekend here at the parish. Whether you’ve given in the past, or you’d be a first-time giver, we ask that you give prayerful consideration to donating this year. Our church family is much bigger than our parish. It’s really up to all of us to help provide the 77 parishes in Eastern Oklahoma— including St Bernard's with the services and ministry resources that no single parish could provide for itself. It’s also important to remember, many of these services we benefit from throughout the year. You’ll hear about all that and more next weekend, the 18th and the 19th.
