The HOPE Appeal is the annual giving campaign of the Diocese of Syracuse. There are many services the diocese provides to our parishes, schools, and to all Catholics that would be difficult for even the most prosperous parishes to undertake on their own. This includes support for educating seminarians, Catholic Charities, campus ministry, parishes and schools, formational ministries, pastoral assistance, evangelizing and communications. When the goal of the HOPE Appeal is achieved, we insure that these programs will receive the funding that is needed.
Every year the programs and services supported by the HOPE Appeal touch countless lives in every city, town, and rural area in our diocese. When the goal of the HOPE Appeal is achieved, we ensure that these programs will receive the funding that is needed. Please take a moment to view this year’s HOPE Appeal video and our allocation of funds to see how your gift makes a difference in the lives of so many.
HOPE APPEAL AT ST. ROSE OF LIMA
Together, when we pledge our gift to the Annual HOPE Appeal, we are giving thanks to Christ for the innumerable gifts we’ve been given and helping our friends and neighbors who benefit each year from the diocesan good works funded through our annual appeal.
OUR PARISH GOAL
Father Chris is asking all parishioners to contribute to this year’s HOPE Appeal. If we all give, we will easily meet St. Rose’s 2020 HOPE Appeal goal of $61,323, which is our parish share of the support for HOPE Appeal-funded ministries, programs, and services. If we exceed our 2020 HOPE Appeal goal, 100 percent of the excess will be returned directly to our parish. Normally, we keep 50% of the excess but this year the Diocese wants each parish to keep any amount collected in excess of the goal. We plan to use these funds to continue the mission of St Rose.
In an effort to meet our goal, I am asking every family in the parish to consider a minimum gift of $175.00 (averages out to $0.48 a day or $14.38 a month) . If you are able to contribute more, I prayerfully encourage you to do so. If you are not able to make the minimum gift, please give something. Your gift, no matter the size, whether it is a pledge or a one-time gift, is important.
