Parish Contributes Funds

To Catholic Charities

The Martha’s Vineyard Parish of the Good Shepherd contributed $20,450 to the 2008 Catholic Charities Appeal in the Diocese of Fall River.

The diocesan appeal raised just under $4.3 million.

The final tally is $10,052 below last year’s record high, representing a decrease of approximately two tenths of one per cent.

Proceeds from the appeal provide financial support for many ministries and programs sponsored by the diocese throughout southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod and the Islands.
