When those in the world see us, see the Church, what do they see? How
do they define us? Through our deeds and our actions, through the impact we make on others’ lives. And so, when Jesus announces to the world that He is risen, he does not do it through pomp, through seeking attention. No, he does it through an act of charity. Through the healing of someone in need, giving of Himself and His gifts so that those who need it most may receive God’s grace and mercy.

That leads Peter to proclaim, “There is no salvation through anyone else,
nor is there any other name under heaven given to the human race by
which we are to be saved.” (Acts 4:8-12) When we show God’s love to others, the joy is contagious. The Good Shepherd knows to lead His flock to where they will prosper, and all He asks is that we follow His holy will. We give of ourselves because He provided the ultimate sacrifice, we love others because His boundless love fills our cups until they are overflowing.

Through our collective support of the Annual Catholic Appeal, we can
proclaim with one voice, Thy Will Be Done. The past year has brought
considerable challenge and hardship to so many, but your generous support of the Appeal helped provide hope and support for our parishes and our
entire community. Please, help our Church continue to make a positive impact in the lives of those who need it most. You can give by visiting: to learn more about how the Appeal uplifts the lives of those we serve.
