“Go and Announce the Gospel of the Lord” is the theme of our 2018 Diocesan Services Appeal. It reminds us that each of us is called to discipleship. Supporting the DSA is one way to share our blessings and the Good News with the world.
You can submit your DSA pledge envelope during Mass this weekend - or take your DSA envelope home, prayerfully consider your gift decision. Those paying by cash or check are invited to return your completed pledge form, in the DSA envelope, to our parish office. Those who wish to pay by credit card or electronic funds transfer may enter your gift online at www.dioceseoflansing.org/dsa. I encourage every one of our parish households to reflect on the many blessings we have received from the Lord and share these blessings through a generous gift to our DSA.
Every dollar donated helps those in our parish and in our unified efforts in the wider church. No gift is too small. One-half of all paid contributions received, over and above our parish goal ($72,386)) will be returned to our parish for our local use.
2018 DSA Prayer
Loving and gracious God, we praise you and we thank you for the bountiful gifts that you have bestowed upon us.
Instill in us the courage to “Go and Announce the Gospel of the Lord.”
Help us to understand that we are called to discipleship, to grow actively in faith and to go and share the good news with the world.
Please bless our unified efforts and help us to bring Christ’s love to all we encounter.
Give us the grace to be generous in our support of the Diocesan Services Appeal, so that we may faithfully participate as missionary disciples in the work of Your Holy Church.
