Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA)
Each year, every parish in the Diocese of Brooklyn participates in an annual appeal . This communal effort raises financial support for life-giving ministries throughout Brooklyn and Queens. Gifts made to the Appeal are credited towards a parish goal and over-goal monies are returned to the parish. all of which will be returned to the parish since we are over goal. That money will benefit our Capital Reserve Fund for major repairs and improvements. Envelopes are available in the church vestibule if you haven’t made your gift yet. Call the rectory to receive an appeal form by mail or call the Appeal Office at 718-965-7300.
Legacy giving is the ultimate act of Christian stewardship. Remembering your parish church in your estate plans and/or planned giving is a significant act of charity. Call the rectory about our Wills Seminar that is offered periodically or for details about naming the church in your will. Charitable Gift Annuities, Remainder and Lead Trusts, and Family Foundations can also be set up with the help of the Diocese’s Alive in Hope Foundation by calling 718-965-7375.
