Did you know that one out of every 10 residents of the Diocese receive at least one service each year from Catholic Charities? The Bishop’s 5K Run/Walk will bring attention and resources to assist Catholic Charities in its continuing efforts to reach out to underserved areas of the Diocese. This event is a great way for you to participate in the mission of Catholic Charities – providing caring service to the most vulnerable in our community.
The Cathedral of Saint Peter, in the historic Quaker Hill section of the City of Wilmington, is the Bishop’s own parish and the center of Catholicism in our diocese. It was built over 200 years ago – 50 years before the founding of the Diocese of Wilmington – and continues with a small but dedicated parish community and school.
At the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, the diocese began livestreaming Sunday Mass from our Cathedral. That effort continues today. In 2015, Bishop Malooly, with the support of the priests of the diocese, instituted an annual special collection to support the maintenance and ministry of our Cathedral.
This year, the collection will be held on August 13 & 14.
More information is available at cathedralofstpeter.com and at www.cdow.org/cathedral. We thank you for your generosity.
The 2022 Faith and Charity Catholic Appeal will be conducted at our parish next weekend. Once a year, our Bishop asks each of us to make a commitment to support the work of diocesan programs and ministries that provide services that no one parish can offer on its own. Your gift helps our Church to serve the poor, the sick, the distressed, our children and our elderly.
As parishioners of St. Thomas we are being asked to serve others by sharing our resources. Your generosity enables us to accompany our brothers and sisters in need.
Our parish target is $40,000. Your financial support of the Appeal also provides funding for our parish since once achieving the goal assigned to our parish, once we are over goal, we receive (50%) of monies collected for our own parish and ministry needs.
Please prayerfully consider your generous gift to this Faith and Charity Catholic Appeal. Kindly decide ahead of time the contribution you wish to make this year and come to church next week prepared to complete your pledge and offer your support to our parish, and the Diocese of Wilmington.
