Are you 72 or older? Have you lost the ability to fully
deduct charitable contribu4ons because you no longer
itemize federal income tax deductions? Do you make
donations to St. Ann church regularly? If you answered
yes to these questions, you may want to consider making
a Qualified Charitable Distribu4on (QCD). A QCD is
generally a non-taxable distribution made directly by the
trustee of your IRA to St. Ann or other qualified chari4es.
A QCD reduces your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) and
thereby reduces taxes. If you are receiving a Required
Minimum Distribution (RMD) from your IRA, a QCD can be
used to help satisfy the RMD. Please consult your tax
advisor or tax return preparer to determine if a QCD
could benefit you.

Efforts to raise necessary resources in support of the 2021 Annual Catholic Appeal continue in our Diocese. St. Ann Parish is truly blessed with many generous people, who, despite many economic challenges, have supported this year’s campaign with their pledges and gifts. To date, $180,450 has been received representing 98% of our parish’s $184,000 goal. Once we reach our goal, all additional money comes back to our parish.

If you have given to this year’s campaign, please know that your participation is gratefully appreciated. If you have not yet done so, please consider supporting this important effort with a pledge or one-time contribution. It is never too late to participate.

The diocesan Annual Catholic Appeal provides financial support that enables more than thirty-five ministries throughout our diocese to bring a glimpse of God into the lives of many. The Appeal is an effective way for the diocese to advance the mission of Christ: to feed and house the poor; to minister to the sick and discouraged; to educate our young; and encourage strong, healthy families.

If you would like more information about the Annual Catholic Appeal or wish to make your contribution on-line, go to www.cdow.org/annualcatholicappeal.

May God bless you for your goodness! Thank you.
