Next weekend our second collection supports the annual Mission Cooperative Plan Appeal for our diocese. The Mission assigned to our parish this year is the Diocese of St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. This appeal helps our brothers and sisters who do not have access to basic pastoral services that support and grow their faith, like Mass, the sacraments, religious education as well as basic needs — food, shelter and healthcare. Through your support, the Mission Appeal helps missions around the world form vibrant faith communities and strengthens the global Church, and your generosity is most appreciated. All donations should be made payable to St. Mary and placed in an envelope marked Mission Appeal.
You may also donate online at https://arlingtonmissions.org/donate/donate-to-other-missions/ (Fund: MCP and indicate Diocese of St. Thomas under Comments).
