2021 Diocesan Services Appeal

A note from Fr. Dan:

There is a particular reason why hitting our DSA goal means so much to me this year. This past year, St. Mary benefited massively from the help of the diocesan staff. The diocesan staff were instrumental in helping us receive $150,000 in PPP money and they were instrumental in organizing our end of the year matching donation challenge that brought in another $150,000 in the month of December. They even purchased some resources for to help us in raising these funds and offered it to us for free. That’s 300K that they participated with us in bringing into our parish. It is fair to say that they are part of our team, and we are going to thrive more abundantly with their help as we move into the future.

Please prayerfully consider making a DSA contribution this year.  A DSA video message from Bishop Boyea is available online at www.dioceseoflansing.org/dsa.  You may also use this link to make a DSA gift via credit card or electronic funds transfer from a bank account.  Pledge forms will also be provided at liturgies on DSA Commitment Weekend, March 6 & 7.

Our DSA parish goal for 2021 is $61,791, and with your help, I am confident we can reach that goal. Once we reach our goal, 50% of any contributions received, over and above our parish goal, will be returned to our local parish.
