THE BISHOP’S APPEAL
Since Easter symbolizes hope and renewal, it has long been the tradition of our Diocese to conduct our annual Bishop’s Appeal in the weeks following Easter as we renew our commitment to empower our church in carrying out the mission entrusted to us by Jesus.
Next weekend in every parish of the diocese, another chapter in the long tradition of generosity begun by our forebears in faith will unfold as we are asked to make our annual gift to the Bishop’s Appeal. In making your gift, I ask that you think about what positive things occur from making a gift. Think of all the lives that are touched, the hungry fed, young people taught, the homeless housed, the sick healed, the aged cared for and the faith of thousands strengthened and nourished, thanks to your generous gift in support of the Bishop’s Appeal.
