2018 Bishop's Annual Appeal

Once again its time for our Annual Bishopís Appeal. Below is the announcement from the BAA office. I would simply add my own appeal to your generosity and charity. It is often said that charity begins at home. Very true! The appeal is for our diocese, our city, our families. There is no donation, no giving that is too small, too insignificant. All charity is important. Please - do what you can. And may the good Lord shower His blessings upon you.

This weekend we kickoff the 2018 Bishopís Annual Appeal (BAA). I am so grateful for your continued generosity to this important diocesan fundraising initiative. The Bishopís Annual Appeal funds the annual budget that offers vital services like Catholic Charities, care for our retired and infirmed priests, education of Seminarians, Catholic schools and support for our centers for special learning. I encourage you to join me to make a difference in the lives of many people. Remember, every gift counts, no matter how small. To make your gift, please return the pledge form that you will receiving in the mail or visit the Appealís website at
