ST. THOMAS THE APOSTLE
CATHOLIC MINISTRIES APPEAL NEWS....
St. Thomas reached its 2016 Catholic Ministries Appeal goal and our thanks go to the 365 donors who made this possible. As a result, St. Thomas has received back $24,933.60 to help fund programs right here in our parish.
FAQ: How is our annual goal set?
The formula for each parish is based on recent average offertory figures and the Consumer Price Index. Our goal for 2017 has been set at $108,400.
FAQ: Why does the church need my money?
Many important ministries and services are beyond the resources of any one parish. It would be impossible for an individual parish to duplicate the scope of ministries and services offered by our Diocese. Through the Catholic Ministries Appeal all parishes unite and become one family to support and sustain programs that educate the young, care for the elderly, feed the hungry and strengthen our Catholic faith in our homes, parishes and communities within our wider Long Island community.
If you have given in the past, we thank you for your generosity and hope that you will donate again. If you have not given in recent years, please consider making a gift this year as so many of our neighbors are in need.
