As you all likely well know, the BAA is a yearly initiative that we, as a parish in the Diocese of Raleigh, are required to support. This year, we have the second-largest BAA goal among all parishes in the Diocese. This is no easy amount, nearly half of a million dollars to raise! But, as an overflowing parish of members looking to serve its community, we must look at this goal with great pride and responsibility. By the grace of God, we are called to give back from our blessings. And while this initiative does great work for many different ministries within our Diocese, here in Cary it may not always seem close to home. I would like to draw your attention to one (among many) major gift that we can tangibly see, however, and that is our parochial vicar, Father Noe! Fr. Noe was ordained a priest of this Diocese in 2019. He was previously a seminarian studying for the priesthood; the BAA directly supports our Raleigh seminarians.
And so, again in 2020, we humbly ask you to please pray for the Bishop's Annual Appeal. That should always be our first response to any decision in life, financial or not. Pray for its success; pray for the many people, resources, and missions that it supports. Pray for Bishop Luis Rafael Zarama as he leads our flock. And finally, pray to see how God is calling you to help St. Michael reach its BAA goal in 2020. We thank you, and may God bless you.
