This weekend we take part in the Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) in our parishes. This used to be known as the Diocesan Services Appeal (DSA). During our fund drives last year we were told this would be a part of our year again. As I mentioned last week we are doing it a month early as a new option. With our new clustering I see a new importance of the appeal. We can see that while we are our individual parish communities we are also part of the larger church. The Diocese of Superior is what we are a part of. Our Bishop and the Diocese provide us with training, business support, leadership, and our priests. With less priests to serve it is not always an easy job. Bishop Peter, with the help of all of us, is continually trying to find ways to keep each individual parish vibrant. We are blessed to have three individual parishes as well as being able to work together as one. The old saying, "many hands help get it done," is true for our parishes. We would not be able to exist without our diocese and the larger church. Please pray and reflect on how you are a part of that and how you might support the Catholic Services Appeal!
In Christ's Peace,
