Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Each year, the Annual Catholic Appeal provides us with an opportunity to help spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to build the Kingdom of God in San Diego and Imperial Valley counties. Guided by the Holy Spirit, our dedicated bishops, priests, deacons, religious men and woman and lay faithful unite in the mission of serving our Lord through acts of charity and love, and works of care and compassion with your generous financial help.
On behalf of the many recipients of your love and kindness, we thank you for your prayerful consideration and call to Discipleship as you have responded to the needs of our brothers and sisters in Christ with a tangible gift of the many gifts that God has given you. By sharing God’s gifts and supporting the life of the diocese you are also contributing in a meaningful way to both the life of the parishes and the work of the universal Church.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Bishop
Robert W. McElroy
Bishop of San Diego & Imperial Valley
