Please consider participating in the important Follow-Up Parish Appeal for Catholic Charities. This is not a special collection; rather it is a chance for all Catholics to make a commitment to transform lives and communities by sharing with others the gifts which God has given you. Funds raised through this effort will be used to expand treatment and prevention services to fight the opioid crisis that has a grip on our families, friends and communities. In 2017, nearly 1,200 people in our diocese died of drug overdoses. With your help, Catholic Charities will be able to expand their reach into every county and provide help and hope to those suffering from addiction.

Double your impact! All new, increased and additional gifts returned in the In-Pew envelopes or donated online at www.CatholicCommunity.org/Challenge will be matched up to $100,000.

Everyone knows someone who has been affected by drug addiction. Prayerfully consider the impact you can have on their recovery and please give as generously as possible. Contact Karen Joyce at (216) 696- 6525 ext. 1910 or kjoyce@CatholicCommunity.org. Thank you for making a difference.
