St. Stephen R.C. Church: Parishioners urged to donate to Appeal

Sat, Mar 25th 2017 07:00 am

Deacon Mike Ficorilli from St. Andrews Parish in Kenmore spoke at all the masses at St. Stephen R.C. Church last weekend about the upcoming Catholic Charities Appeal.

Ficorilli, a Grand Island resident who was formerly involved with the music ministry at St. Stephen's, has worked in the food pantry for Catholic Charities. He reminded the parishioners that during the Lenten season a good way to increase works of mercy is to donate to the Catholic Charities drive. The drive last year assisted more than 152,000 people through 70 different programs in the eight counties of Western New York. The Appeal runs through Easter and the goal is $11 million. Donations can be made by return mail or at the weekend masses.
