These services will be as follows:
Thursday, March 14 at 7 PM at Annunciation in Havelock
Thursday, March 21 at 7 PM at Mother of Mercy in Washington
Thursday, March 28 at 10 AM at St. Paul, New Bern

Bishop's Annual Appeal
The 2019 Bishop's Annual Appeal is underway. To date, 103 parishioners have contributed $35,955.00 toward our parish goal of $73,108.00. That is 49.1% of the goal. Remember that 100% of monies over our goal return to us for local projects. Pledge cards are available in the vestibules or pledges can be made online at www.dioceseofraleigh.org. Please be sure to include our Parish number of P408. Thanks to all who have supported the BAA thus far.
Recently there have been editorials published urging Catholics not to support any Bishop's Lenten Appeals this year because of donations being used for misconduct-related expenses. For the last several years, including this year, outside independent auditors have issued an ``Attestation Letter'' indicating they have reviewed the Bishop's Annual Appeal and the Cathedral pledge accounts and have attested that NO funds from these sources in our Diocese have been used for any settlements or legal fees. This letter can be found on the diocesan website.
