Letter from our Pastor Fr. Steve - February, 2023
I am writing to invite you to participate in the 2023 Annual Catholic Appeal for the Diocese of San Diego, “Living Our Faith.” United with 96 other parishes throughout the diocese, we can make a tremendous impact as we strive to carry out the mission Jesus entrusted to us!
The Annual Catholic Appeal provides an opportunity to share our gifts beyond our parish boundaries, in support of ministries that serve San Diego and Imperial Counties. Your contribution supports candidates for the priesthood and care for retired priests of our diocese who served faithfully in our parishes for decades. It assists the poor and vulnerable through the services of Catholic Charities, and impacts Catholic schools with tuition assistance for students in need. The Annual Catholic Appeal provides funding for the formation of catechists for our children and theological formation for adults. It also helps support training for the leaders of our Youth and Young Adult ministries, and our Restorative Justice and Prison Ministry.
Our parish goal for the Annual Catholic Appeal is $76,830. I am confident that with your help, we can exceed our goal. Funds collected beyond our goal will go to support our Facilities Improvement Fund. You can also contribute online. Through your gift, we impact thousands of lives in our local Church community. Thank you for your support as we live our faith by participating in the Church’s mission to be the good news to those in need.
Sincerely Yours in Christ, Father Steve Callahan
