Opening Doors to Encounter Christ
2017 Archdiocese of Detroit Catholic Services Appeal – St. Thomas More Parish
The theme of this year’s CSA appeal is Opening Doors to Encounter Christ. You may not immediately think of doors being spiritual but they can be. Last year Pope Francis opened a “Year of Mercy” for the Church and blessed a special door at the Vatican through which millions of pilgrims entered.
This highlighted what our faith proclaims:
Jesus is the Door to His Father,
and our God always wants to embrace all of us with His mercy and love.
The CSA is a very concrete way of extending the mercy and love we receive from God to our brothers and sisters in need. When you support the CSA, you support a multitude of ministries,
programs, and services – you open doors to Jesus.
Thank you for your participation in CSA 2017. You and your support are greatly appreciated.
Monsignor Thomas G. Rice, Pastor
Our Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) Target for
2017 Campaign is:
This is $18,654 less
than the 2016 Target!
Doors at St. Thomas More
Your doors at home!
This year we would like to use any monies received over the CSA Goal to refinish the front doors to the church. The wood is in need of sanding and staining so funds over our target will be used to pay for the work to make our doors more beautiful and welcoming! Funds received over the repair costs will be saved toward the cost of adding entrance doors to the church.
If we receive your CSA pledge by May 31, 2017,
your name will be entered into a drawing to
win a $250 Home Depot Gift Card
to make your doors at home more welcoming!
You do not need to pay your gift in full to be entered, just return the portion of this brochure with your pledge. You may also want to consider making your pledge online at http://stmtroy.aodcsa.org. Pledge cards must be received in the parish office by 1:00 p.m., May 31, 2017, to be in the drawing.
