2024 Catholic Ministries Appeal

Bulletin & Newsletter Announcements

Our Catholic faith is universal – one teaching, one Church and one Body of Christ. From cradle to grave each of us learns of and experiences this faith most immediately and intimately in our local parish. The Bishop, as teacher of the faith, has the responsibility to assure that lifelong formation is a priority in the parishes and that the faithful are afforded opportunities to grow in the life of Christ through prayer and by experiences, reflections and studies. Critical to these efforts are faith-filled and competent catechetical and pastoral ministers.
