STATEMENT FROM BISHOP ZARAMA
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, It is with sadness, but more importantly with the gift of hope, that I share this news with you. Based on new guidance from state and national officials regarding the great need to further limit the numbers of people gathered, so as to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), I have asked that all public daily and weekend Masses in the Diocese of Raleigh be suspended at this time until further notice. This is an exceedingly difficult decision as your Bishop, given my love for you and more, what I know of your love for Our Lord. Yet, at this time, it is clear to me that as Catholics we need to make this sacrifice together with so many others out of our stewardship of the common good and out of our care to our most vulnerable brothers and sisters. Please join me in continuing prayer for all who in this moment are suffering, displaced, or experiencing fear, as well as all their family members, friends and healthcare professionals that care for them. Most of all, let us together also seek the intercession of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, patroness of the Diocese of Raleigh and our nation, that in us Her faith in God may be confirmed, whose power forever seeks to cast down the mighty, lift up the lowly, and fill the hungry with good things. With my gratitude in Christ, + Luis R. Zarama Bishop of Raleigh
Stewardship and Offertory
During this time of separation due to COVID-19 and the fact that we cannot gather for Word and Sacrament, the church still has expenses and obligations that need to be fulfilled. While we know and appreciate that some of our families are having some financial issues themselves, we ask that where it is possible that parishioners remember to send their donations to the church. You can signup for Online Giving by clicking the link below or by mailing them to the parish at 1706 Evans Street, Morehead City, NC 28557. We thank you for your assistance in helping us fulfill our obligations.

BISHOP'S ANNUAL APPEAL
We know that may of the ministries directly funded by the Bishop's Annual Appeal such as Counseling, Disaster Services and Senior Pharmacy will be some of the most requested services by parishioners now and immediately following the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic. The money raised through the BAA will determine how the diocese can support the mission of the parishes during this time of uncertainty. It is important that we collectively as a Diocese continue to fund and support this work. Our Parish has reached 87% of our goal with $63,558 contrbuted from only 192 families. Please prayerfully consider joining these families and helping us achieve our goal. Your support for the BAA and commitment to our weekly offertory during these challenging times in appreciated.
