Welcome to the 2018 Annual Diocesan Appeal – Building Our Family of Faith.
This year’s theme is inspired by two sources.
- The first is Galatians 6:10: “So, as we have the opportunity, let us do good to all men, especially to those who are of the household of faith.”
- The second is from Pope Francis and his reflection during the Feast of the Holy Family in 2017: “Christian families are missionary families. …They are missionary in everyday life, in their doing everyday things, as they bring to everything the salt and the leaven of faith!”
With the most ambitious goal in its history (over $3.1 million), the 2018 Appeal will provide critical funding to many diverse and impactful ministries that affect the lives of thousands of people in our Diocese.
This week and into next week, many of you will receive a letter from Bishop Knestout asking for your support of the 2018 Annual Diocesan Appeal. It is our sincere hope that you will answer our Bishop’s request and make a generous pledge to this effort.
