St. Fabian Mission Statement:
St. Fabian Catholic Parish is a Eucharist-centered community. We celebrate the giftedness of each person by living our faith and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Pastor's Welcome & more . . .
The 34th annual Archdiocesan Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) is now underway. The CSA finances important ministries, programs, and services throughout our six-county Archdiocese. These blessings benefit thousands of people each day – which our parish could not do alone.
On the weekend of May 2 and 3 a brief statement from a CSA committee representative will be given after the announcements at each Mass. A recorded talk by Archbishop Vigneron will be available on the parish website. CSA brochures, ‘Bringing Jesus Christ to All’, which highlights many CSA-funded ministries, programs, and services will be available in the church gathering space that same weekend.
This year, our parish CSA target will be $204,682. If we exceed our target, any excess will be returned directly to our parish. If we do not meet the target, the shortfall will be taken from our general fund.
We ask each family to contribute $350 toward our target, either as a one-time cash payment or in the form of a pledge. The latter translates to a $35 pledge down payment and $35 pledge installment for the following 9 months. You may also make quarterly payments. We realize that some parishioners have more than others and are able to give more – what is important is that each of us does the very best we can.

We have made a few additions to the E-giving program. First we have added the option
for a donation to our St. Vincent de Paul Society. This donation comes out twice a year on 2/27 and 9/27. Second, we have asked if you want to be removed from the envelope mailing service. St. Fabian pays a service to prepare and send envelopes to each household. If you are signed up for Electronic Giving, these envelopes are likely not necessary. (Please note: it can take several months for the service to be discontinued because they print them well in advance of the mailing.) Use the new enrollment form to add St. Vincent de Paul or eliminate mailed contribution envelopes.
If you ever need to make changes to an existing donation or to cancel your electronic giving, there are boxes on top of the enrollment form to Change Donation Amount, Change Account, or Cancel. In these cases, simply fill in the relevant information.
Thanks for considering this cost-saving and time-saving choice for giving.
