“Holiness doesn’t mean doing extraordinary things, but doing things with love and faith”. Pope Francis
With the blessings of the Most Reverend Gregory Parkes, we invite your participation in our Heavenly Benefactors annual fundraiser of the St Petersburg Diocesan Council of Catholic Women.
This campaign funds a significant portion of our annual budget, assisting members to develop and share leadership skills by attending National Council of Catholic Women Conventions and Florida Council of Catholic Women Conferences. Legislative skills are developed by lobbying for the Florida Conference Catholic Bishops in Tallahassee during Catholic Days at the Capitol, and attending the Red Mass concelebrated by the Bishops of Florida while joining the Florida Cabinet, Legislators and Judges. Our Ministry outreach includes Parish, Community, National and international arenas. We are local women’s groups making a global impact and we are asking for your support.
We welcome and greatly appreciate your support in one of seven categories of donations. Your small donation ranging from $10.00 for Memorials, Mentors, and Cherubs to $100.00 + for Special Angels, will have a great impact on our organization and the work we accomplish. Please visit our website for more information on the Council and our events and outreach.
The accompanying submission form has a category of support just right for you. Please postmark your submissions so that we can include your honorees in the Diocesan Convention Program Book. Due Date: March 15, 2018, postmark deadline. Late submissions will be posted on our website along with those received before the deadline until our next Convention. Honorees names and intentions will also be included in our prayer petitions at the 3 Masses Celebrated at Convention.
