The other day I received the Lenten Appeal Assessment from the Diocese. This year we are being asked to raise $106,400 to help fund the important ministries of our local diocesan Church in Harrisburg. Although this is a decrease of about $5000 from last year, the timing of the appeal is not the most opportune as we are in the middle of a capital campaign. Nevertheless I know we will do our best to meet our obligations to the Diocese in addition to our campaign. Thank you again for your continued generosity and faithfulness.
