November 2014 ABCD 2014

Although we have, as a community, reached our 2014 annual goal for the Archbishop's Charities and Development appeal, there are still some $51,000 worth of pledges that have not yet been completed. As you may know, everything that is collected over and above the required goal is scheduled to come back to the parish. Here at Little Flower, we have already budgeted for the total pledges, and anticipate, as well as need, all the pledges to be complete. Thank you for helping us bring ABCD 2014 to a successful conclusion.
