It’s important to provide parishioners with an invitation to share their financial gifts to help provide Catholic outreach, ministry, education, and services to the people and parishes throughout the Diocese – Catholic or not. We are simply called to be Christ to one another.
The Bishop’s Annual Appeal also provides a teachable moment. It allows parish leaders the opportunity to talk about the connectedness and universality of our Church. We are reminded that we are responsible not only for our parish, but also for the well-being of the Church throughout the Diocese. Since we are one community of believers, members of all parish communities throughout the Diocese of Charleston, we are invited to give to this effort.
