Bishop’s Appeal Supports Deacon Training & Formation

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.    — Matthew 28: 19-20

There are many disciples of Christ who live in our world today.  A disciple of Jesus is someone who is a good friend of His, who spends quiet time with him every day, and see’s the face of Jesus in those around him.

Deacons are living disciples of Christ!  They assist at Mass and proclaim the Gospel to people in prisons, hospitals, shelters, youth programs and to people who are sick and homebound.

In 2018, the Discipleship & Leadership Development Mission Team received 62% of their operating budget from the Bishop’s Appeal.  Please make a gift today to help train and form deacons and lay ministers who serve in parishes throughout the Diocese.  Thank you for your support of the Bishop’s Appeal.
