Bishop Mark Bartchak has announced the 2015 Annual Catholic Appeal's goal amount for Ss. Peter and Paul is $20,078. The official start of the ACA pledge drive is next weekend, March 7th and 8th. "This is our opportunity to support more than 20 ministries that serves God's people throughout our 8 county diocese." Bishop Mark continued, "In order to encounter us, Christ offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice. During this season of Lent, you and I are reminded of the importance of sacrifice in our lives. I invite you to participate in this mission of Christ through a sacrificial gift to the Annual Catholic Appeal." Pope Francis continues to remind us, as he outlined in his exhortation, The Joy of the Gospel, that the Church's mission is to provide opportunities for people to encounter Christ where they are. Though you may not be able to physically participate in the many missions of our Diocese, you can help meet the needs of God's people by financially supporting the missions. Bishop Mark ended his request with, "Let's work together through our Annual Catholic Appeal to make Pope Francis' vision a reality, so that all who are served will come to know the love of Christ and the joy of His Gospel."
