Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Greetings of peace.

As you may know, the Bishop’s Annual Appeal supports many important ministries throughout the Diocese of  Raleigh, including Catholic Charities, Seminarians, the Catholic Schools Office, Catholic adult and youth education and the Pro-Life Office. These programs help support our Catholic faith and provide services to many in need, some of whom are in our local community.  I hope that you will prayerfully consider making a gift of your time, talent, and treasure to support the BAA ministries.

Please join with Catholic families who have demonstrated an inspiring example of faith through sacrificial giving.  By pledging a gift to the BAA today, you will become part of a group of families who are reaching out to accelerate service to the poor and defenseless in our immediate area and throughout the Diocese. Their care and compassion to serve the very desperate in need, just as Christ did, is exemplary and an inspiration to all.

If you have already contributed, thank you!  If you have not, please take some time for your thoughtful discernment to consider your contribution.

In the peace of Christ,

Fr. Mark
