Dear Parishioner: I am reaching out to you at this time of the year, when our CSA collection is being launched and we listen to the official appeal at church during Mass this weekend.
The CSA collection is first of all an expression of our commitment to the local church. Saints Cyril and Methodius could never exist as an independent parish without our local bishop, who represents for us a connection with the Catholic, universal church and with the mission which Jesus entrusted to His believers. I would not be here without the mandate from the Archbishop of Detroit. Archbishop Vigneron, our pastor, is asking us to contribute to the shared diocesan projects. These could not be pursued by individual parishes and yet are crucial for the life of the Church.
The goal we need to reach is a calculation based on the church’s income. We, the Parish, must reach that goal, no matter what! 100% of every contribution from every person goes directly towards our goal. If we fail to reach our goal, we must make up for it from our general fund. However, every contribution to our general fund is taxed at 7% by the Archdiocese of Detroit before we can use it. In other words, it costs us an additional 7% if we have to use funds from our general account to achieve our CSA goal.
Please, prayerfully consider how you can contribute to the CSA collection this year. Sending your contribution to CSA is an expression of your support of Ss. Cyril & Methodius. Even if the pastor does not know about your contribution, God surely knows.
Thank you & God bless you,
