Thank you to everyone who has already pledged to the Diocesan Appeal. Your generosity has helped the church work toward our goal of $72,787.00. If you have not yet pledged to the appeal, there is still plenty of time to do so. Please prayerfully consider how you can help us lower our $29,000.00 shortfall. Pledges, payments, or a one-time gift can be made with the pledge card you received in the mail with a check made out to St. James-DA and can be dropped in the collection basket at Mass, mailed to St. James Church, 402 Church St., Belvidere, IL 61008, brought to the parish office, or you can pledge online at www.rockforddiocese.org/donate.
