We have begun fundraising for the 2014 Bishop’s Annual Appeal “Grateful to God; Generous to Neighbor.” This is the first stand alone Bishop’s Annual Appeal since 2011. If you remember, the 2012 and 2013 Bishop’s Annual Appeal were included in the recent capital campaign.
Hopefully, you have heard and read stories over the last few weeks that serve as examples for how your donation to the BAA will be used in the upcoming year. The BAA attempts to meet the physical and spiritual needs of those across eastern North Carolina, as well as our parish, parishioners and those in our immediate community. By supporting the BAA, our combined generosity can have an incredible and long-lasting impact by serving those most in need.
Many of you may have already responded to the initial mailing in the last few weeks from the Diocese. If you have not recently responded to the appeal, please use the envelopes provided at Mass in the pews.
It’s not the size of the gift, but the spirit in which it is given.
The One Faith, One People, Our Future campaign has raised over $3,979,000! Only $371,000 remains towards reaching the original goal of $4.35MM. Pledging in this campaign has never been about the amount of the gift, but the sacrifice of your gift. Everyone has been blessed in different ways. The ultimate goal is 100% participation from our parish. Every size gift matters! Your gift is needed and appreciated no matter the amount. Please remember that you can spread your pledge over 3 years. For instance, a $500 pledge over 3 years is only $0.46 a day.
It’s never to late to pledge! Please drop your pledge envelope off at the parish office or in the offertory basket at Mass. Thank you and God Bless! Questions?: email@example.com

St. Michael Parish Pastoral Vision Plan 2013-2016
Our parish now uses an Online Giving system called WeShare. This will allow you to make your donations without writing a check each week. You can set up a recurring weekly or monthly payment, allocate different amounts for our different collections, and view complete, accurate financial records at any time. It saves all of us time and is a win-win for our parish!
Those who wish to continue to use traditional methods of offering may do so, however, we ask that you prayerfully consider Online Giving. If you would like to enroll, please visit www.stmichaelcary.weshareonline.org OR Click the Donate Now button. If you have any questions about the program or about setting up your account, don't hesitate to call our parish office at 468-6128 or 468-6132.
