Our Going Deeper campaign is making good headway on our financial goal for 2014-15. Our dedicated community has stepped up with a generous spirit by increasing weekly donations, contributing through Parish Pay, and asking what other assistance is needed. We are developing a deeper culture of giving that is blessing our much-loved Newman Center and its mission. Thank you for your spirit.
