MESSAGE FROM BISHOP ROBERT P. DEELEY
In this extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, we are reminded that God looks upon us with love and mercy each day and calls us to share his love and mercy with others. Our Holy Father, Pope Francis wrote of his hope “that we can go out to every man and woman, bringing the goodness and tenderness of God.”
The Catholic Appeal truly embraces this mission, sharing God’s mercy through 18 different ministries across the diocese. The Catholic Appeal multiplies the work of one person, one parish, to reach thousands of faithful, thousands of those hungry for our faith, eager to learn of and to feel God’s mercy in their lives. The Catholic Appeal depends on you to accomplish this.
As you begin to think about your gift to the Catholic Appeal for 2016, I invite you to pray about how you, along with every Catholic in our diocese, can best share God’s mercy. Your gifts will help Christ’s love and mercy to be known throughout our diocese so that the Holy Spirit can set our world on fire!
