Welcome to the Bishop's Appeal!
The annual Bishop’s Appeal is but one way to respond to our Holy Father’s call to a deeper renewed conversion. Catholics of the Diocese of Oakland are asked to pray for our fellow parishioners, our leadership and clergy, for those who are served by the many ministries and programs offered by the Church, and for the success of the 2013 Bishop’s Appeal.
Every member of the faith community of our local Church is also asked to participate in whatever way possible by making a gift. All gifts to the 2013 Bishop’s Appeal are equally important. As faithful stewards of our faith and the many gifts that God has generously bestowed on each of us, we are asked to make a sacrificial, proportionate and planned gift. Those who are blessed with more are challenged to give more, but everyone is asked to respond. Imagine what can be done in the name of our local faith community if every parishioner participated in this annual appeal.
