So often throughout this year I have been reminded how truly connected we all are, and how blessed we are to be able to turn to each other in times of struggle. Many of us have faced new hardships, yet I continue to be inspired by the many ways our parish faith community has come together. Even as we followed the public health guidance for social distancing and limited our interactions, we remain one body in Christ, the Church.
This year, more than ever, our parish has relied on the many resources offered by the Archdiocese as we chart a path forward through the challenges we face. The Archdiocese has worked tirelessly with us to secure government funding for parishes, provide us with guidance, resources, and supplies to safely restart Mass, and offered webinars and tools to share ideas to maintain our virtual connections and continue our evangelization efforts. The annual Catholic Appeal funds the ministries that provides these resources as well as many others that enable us to continue tending to the spiritual needs of our parishioners and serving our brothers and sisters most in need during this pandemic.
Recognizing that many of you may be navigating your own financial challenges, but with concern for all those in need of our assistance, I ask for your prayerful consideration of a gift to the 2020 Catholic Appeal at whatever level is comfortable for you. In past years, you have had the opportunityto participate in the Appeal during an in-pew presentation in March at Mass. Unfortunately, the pandemic prevented us from offering that option, and so I am asking you now to send in your Appeal gift with the enclosed form. Every gift makes a difference, and your participation is very much appreciated not only by our parish, but by the many ministries working throughout our Archdiocese that allow us to stay connected to our Church and take care of each other as one body in Christ.
You can make an online gift at bostoncatholicappeal.org. Make sure to indicate your parish as Saint Anthony of Padua Parish in Cohasset;
Our parish is blessed to have such wonderful and supportive parishioners like you. May God continue to bless you and all whom you hold dear.
With sincere gratitude,
Rev. Scott A. Euvrard
Pastor: St. Anthony Parish/Cohasset & St. Mary of the Assumption Parish/Hull
