2019 Annual Catholic Appeal
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
God pours forth grace to each of us every day of our lives, inviting us to share ever more deeply His life of mercy, justice and compassion.
This year, the theme of our Annual Catholic Appeal is “Responding to God’s Grace”.
In responding to God’s call to grace and stewardship, which lies at the heart of our participation in the life of the Church – we do so by supporting our parishes, schools, catechetical programs, service programs for the poor, the unborn and the marginalized through our Diocesan Annual Appeal.
Through your generous support, the diocese is able to carry out its mission of priestly formation, forming permanent deacons, preparing couples for marriage, ministering to the poor, the marginalized and the imprisoned, training our youth and young adults, training parish leaders to bring faith to children in our parish schools and religious formation programs, and caring for our retired priests who have given the whole of their lives in service to the life of the Church.
The Diocese of San Diego and Imperial Counties supports this holy work in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and in a unique way provides for our parishes many vital resources and programs which they cannot obtain on their own.
Our Diocesan Annual Appeal establishes a basic underpinning for enabling the diocese to carry out these vital ministries in the work of the Gospel in San Diego and Imperial Counties. For this reason, I invite you to participate with a joyous and open heart to this year’s appeal, with the knowledge that in doing so, you share of yourself immensely in the work of Christ and the grace of Catholic discipleship.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Robert W. McElroy
