ADA 2017

“Proclaiming God’s Love, Together in Christ” is this year’s Annual Diocesan Appeal theme for the Diocese of San Jose. Every year, faithful Catholics from 54 parishes and missions within Santa Clara County, contribute generously to support common services and programs in the Diocese.

The pledge forms are located in the vestibule or the office.  You can also pay online through the Diocese of San Jose website.

My dear Parishioners of Santa Teresa,

I am writing to you about the 2017 Annual Diocesan Appeal. The slogan for 2017 is “Proclaiming God’s Love, Together in Christ”. The ADA kickoff weekend is February 11-12, 2017 because Easter Sunday is April 16th, 2017.

You have always been generous towards the needs of the Diocese of San Jose, the Church in our beloved Santa Clara Valley. There are many things the Diocese can do for us as an extension of our parish church family. Every year we have made our goal and have gone even beyond, so that funds collected over 100% of the goal have returned back to us to help with our own parish needs. I am grateful for your efforts and for your constant generosity. Once again we will make our goal with your participation in 2017, the 50th Anniversary of Santa Teresa Parish.

Santa Teresa Parish’s goal for 2017 is $91,861.

As we continue our 50th Anniversary celebrations, let us not forget to support our Bishop and the Diocese of San Jose in the upcoming Annual Diocesan Appeal.

Sincerely and gratefully yours,

~Reverend George Aranha, Pastor
