2023 Diocesan Services Appeal

Dear Parish Family,

I write this letter to invite you to join me in support of the 2023 Diocesan Services Appeal – “Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving.” This scripture text is a call to show our thanks for our many gifts. The Psalmist urges us to action – to sacrifice to God for the many gifts He has given us, and that greatest gift: the gift of His Son in the Holy Eucharist.

My friends, DSA is one opportunity to sacrifice to God by giving generously to support the ministries and charitable organizations of the Church in the Diocese of Lansing.  Our contributions are put to work right away in a multitude of ministries to offer direct assistance to individuals, families, parishes, Catholic schools, and Catholic Charities agencies.  

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 can also be found in the front Lobby on the main table.

Our DSA parish goal for 2023 is $67,343 and with your help, I am confident we can reach that. Once we reach our goal, 50% of any contributions received over and above our target amount, will be returned to our local parish. 

Thank you for your generosity. Be assured of my prayers for you and your loved ones.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

Pastor Fr. Dan Kogut

P.S.  We’re pleased to continue to offer a recurring monthly gift option this year!  Simply go to dioceseoflansing.org/appeal to make a recurring monthly contribution until you choose to stop.  Thank you!
