Catholic Services Appeal (CSA)

“Opening Doors to Grow with Christ” This is the theme for the 2018 Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) which is now underway.

Pope Francis says “Lord, help us to live the virtue of generosity, to love without limits.”

“Opening Doors to Witness Christ” is the theme for the 2019 Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) which is now underway. Deuteronomy 16:17 says “Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God that he has given you.”

CSA is our annual fund drive that supports the programs and ministries of the Archdiocese. Since established in 1982, the CSA has supported ministries throughout the Archdiocese.  Locally, the CSA supports us in ministries such as: SMOTH’s Women’s Ministries, Holy Family Regional School, RCIA, our Christian Service Commission, Seminarians, our Music Ministries, Youth Ministries, Marriage Enrichment Program, training for our Lay Leadership, our Men’s Ministries, Seniors, and many more programs at SMOTH.

Our CSA assessment for 2019 is $181,405.  It is vital that we meet this assessment so that our parish budget and programs are protected.  As you may know, all funds raised in excess of the goal stay with us for use on projects vital to St Mary of the Hills.  Through your generosity last year we were able to meet our parish goal once again and start a fund to replace our aging playground equipment.  We have once again set an Overall Parish Goal of $205,000 which would exceed the assessment by nearly $25,000 and allow us to continue funding our playground replacement budget as well as purchase a new Carillon.
