Please take the envelope home, make your pledge or gift, and return it to the basket at the entry, or the parish office. You may mail it directly to the BAA, but
don’t forget to put St. Edward Church - Granville below your name and address.
Please recall that we are hoping for a household gift of $500, payable over 10 months. Thank you for your kind consideration of this appeal.

“Living the Joy of the Gospel,” the theme of the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, inspires us, as people of faith, to share joyfully the Good News of Christ to those who most need to feel His love. Works of kindness and assistance, sometimes in the smallest way, can bring about a profound change in a person’s life.
This weekend is Commitment Weekend for the Appeal, at which time you can make your gift or pledge. See Pastor notes for details. Our parish has been asked to raise $100,849.63. We can accomplish this if, after prayerful consideration, everyone gives what they can. Any amount raised over our goal will be returned to our parish to be used for our particular needs.
