2014 Catholic Ministries AppealLearn more

The Catholic Ministries Appeal for 2014 is underway at St. William’s. Our parish goal is $132,700. Your support is needed to reach this goal.

The Appeal focuses on four areas critical to the mission of our Church — Catholic Charities, Education and Formation, Pastoral Ministries and Parishes. Your gift to the Appeal provides the funding for the various programs critical to the continued success of our church here on Long Island and at St. William’s through the Appeal’s parish sharing (rebate) program.

We thank God for all of His blessings and recognize that as we look back in appreciation, we must also look forward with a sense of responsibility to help those in need — families displaced by Hurricane Sandy.
