Catholics across the Archdiocese are being asked to make a commitment to support the 2014 Catholic Appeal. Ministries supported by the Appeal have a direct impact on the administration and evangelization efforts at St. John the Baptist Parish and St. James Parishs  as well as at the 286 other parishes in our Archdiocese. Your generous support and participation is critical to the success of the 2014 Catholic Appeal at St. John the Baptist and St. James and helps move us forward in hope as we seek to better embody the Gospel message in our lives. Please complete a pledge form available in the back of the Church or pledge online at BostonCatholicAppeal.org. Thank you for your prayers and support for a successful Catholic Appeal.
