The House of Charity: Bishop’s Annual Appeal (update)

The House of Charity (Español) – Bishop’s Annual Appeal seeks to raise funds to provide care, respect, justice, peace and dignity for every soul in the Diocese of Camden. We ask that you prayerfully consider how this annual program provides solace, support and grace to thousands of your brothers and sisters in Christ and give, generously, in support of the 2017 House of Charity – Bishop’s Annual Appeal.

Parish Update: Our goal here at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish is $160,000.00 and we are at $94,670.00 (59.2%).

We invite ALL parishioners to participate in this important effort.  We have sent out a letter to those who have not yet participated. If each of those families would make a sacrificial gift of $75 or whatever you can afford, we will make our goal to help continue the mission of the Church here in the Diocese of Camden. God loves a cheerful giver and by giving of your treasure, it will come back to you in so many different ways. If you are unable to give at this time, pray for this success of our campaign.

Your support of the 2017 House of Charity – Bishop’s Annual Appeal ensures the vitality of essential Diocesan ministries and programs that sustain the healing, teaching and redemptive Presence of Jesus Christ through the Diocese of Camden.
