Annual Fund
Annual Fund May the Lord give you peace!

This is the time of year when we kick off the St. Mary’s Annual Fund Drive. This drive is vital to the operation of the parish and it is critical for the capital needs of the parish. As you know we do a great deal of good work at St. Mary’s and all of that good work is due to your generosity. However, we count on the Annual Fund to close the budget gap. The Annual Fund helps us to accomplish the things that we might not otherwise be able to accomplish. Our goal this year is $325,000.   more...

 If you would like to make a pledge or one-time payment to the Annual Fund through our eGiving program, Faith Direct, visit www.faithdirect.net

You do not need to have or open an account with Faith Direct to make a one-time payment to the Annual Fund.
