With the direction of our honorable Bishop Kevin Vann, our Diocese has asked that we all participate in the Census 2020 campaign. More details will be announced shortly. Census data helps direct more than $800 billion annually to key programs designed to advance the common good, strengthen families and reduce poverty. Our Catholic Church and other service providers rely on the national Census to provide an accurate count in order to effectively serve those in need. Please spread the words and participate in this Census Counts 2020 campaign. If you would like to volunteer to be part of the campaign committee, email your name, your phone numbers to firstname.lastname@example.org.
