The Annual Catholic Appeal launched on October 19 & 20, 2013. You should have received the in-pew envelopes by now; if you have not received the material please contact me as soon as possible at (509) 965-7117. I also urge you to carefully review the check off list for the Pledge Weekend November 2 & 3, 2013.

Dana Johnson, ACA Bookkeeper, will also be emailing the label document needed to place on the pledge cards, unless the card is already pre-printed including a Diocesan account number. You should receive this emailed document today or tomorrow.

November 2/3: ACA Pledge Weekend

       Pastor/Associate Pastor Homily on Annual Support. (See attached Homily Aid)

       Make In-pew Appeal – Help parishioners complete Pledge Card* in envelope. Assure Pledge Cards are completed thoroughly by taking parishioners step by step.  Be be sure they indicate the language they prefer the mailings to be received, and have them indicate how they prefer receiving their monthly statement by Email or Direct Mail. Please ask them to only check one. Ask them to clearly print their Name, Address, Home Phone #, Email Address, and Parish Name.

  • Let them know about the materials inside in-pew envelopes
  • ACA Information Card
  • Pledge Card
  • Let them know the different ways to donate by Cash, Check or Credit/Debit/EFT. If they check Credit/Debit/EFT they must complete the backside of the pledge card. 

       Before each Mass on Pledge and Follow-Up Weekends, make certain that each pew pocket is replenished with envelopes and a sufficient number of pencils.

       Use ACA suggested Prayers of the Faithful at all Masses.

       Place announcements in bulletin and make pulpit announcements at all Masses.
