Catholic Appeal 2016


MESSAGE FROM BISHOP ROBERT P. DEELEY

As we journey on this Extraordinary Holy Year of Mercy, let us call to mind the words of the Holy Father, Pope Francis: “This [Holy Year] is the opportune moment to change our lives!” the Pope writes. “This is the time to allow our hearts to be touched! When confronted with evil deeds, even in the face of serious crimes, it is the time to listen to the cry of innocent people who are deprived of their property, their dignity, their feelings, and even their very lives.”

As you think about the Catholic Appeal for 2016, I invite you to pray about how you, along with every Catholic in our diocese, can share God’s mercy with the world so as to ignite the power of the Holy Spirit within our Church and set our world on fire with the love and mercy of God.

Thank you for all you have done, for your prayers, and for your support. Please be assured of my own prayers for you and your loved one
