Congratulations to you ans St. Columbia Parish on exceeding your 2013 Annual Appeal goal! Fundraising is never an easy task, especially in these difficult financial times.But I am pleased to report that we are on track to reach $20 million this year, our highest Appeal goal yet! This would not be possible without you.
Please know how deeply grateful I am to you and your parish community. As one family in faith, we have a responsibility to guarantee that the church remains vibrant and continues to serve our brothers and sisters in need. Thanks to your leadership, you have helped ensure that the good works of the archdiocese can continue. Keep up the good work!
With renewed gratitude and prayerful best wishes, I remain,
Fraternally in Christ,
Archbishop of New York
