The 2nd Sunday of Lent was our annual Diocesan Services Appeal. The goal for the whole diocese is to raise $4,750,000. St. Gerard has been asked to raise $194,581 of that total.
The DSA supports many things that parishes or individuals simply could not do; things like seminary formation, lay leadership formation, Catholic Charities, St. Francis Retreat Center, hopsital chaplaincy and a whole host of other ministries and services.
