Letter from Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller
My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I am truly grateful to our archdiocesan community. Your faithful love for Christ and His Church are reflected in the support that you give to serve others through your charitable works of mercy. Together, we serve God’s people in word and deed through the Ministry of the Archbishop’s Appeal.
As our Holy Father, Pope Francis, has said, “We are all Missionary Disciples with the power of the Spirit.” This has been shared with us and passed on for many generations since the first Pentecost. We are a family of faith that is sealed with the Holy Spirit and sent forth by Christ to proclaim His love and mercy with all whom we encounter; especially those most in need spiritually, physically, and emotionally.
How Your Gift Can Make a Difference
God has given each one of us gifts, graces, talents and abilities that are to be shared responsibly and wisely with others. Stewardship is more than the occasional act of charity and service. It is the way we live our lives, the commitment we give of our time, talent and treasure in thanksgiving for all the blessings we have received. Though we are made up of many faithful from parishes across our Archdiocese, we are one spiritual community. We are Disciples, Sent by the Spirit to work in this vineyard so that it bears fruit to nourish the faith of our families, our friends and our neighbors.Read More
