2017 Diocesan Annual Appeal Walk Together in the Light of Christ

“Since our earliest days we have been taught how to pray by the words that Jesus himself shared with us in the scriptures. He began that prayer by saying, ‘Our Father.’ We walk together as brothers and sisters in the light of Christ by the very nature of our faith. In his great instruction to us, Evangelii Gaudum (The Joy of the Gospel), Pope Francis invites us all to missionary discipleship as authentic followers of the Lord Jesus. Missionary discipleship calls us to go out of ourselves and to preach the Gospel and to respond to the needs of our brothers and sisters with whom we walk.” - Bishop Joseph C. Bambera

Our Holy Father tells us, “God’s heart has a special place for the poor, so much so that he himself ‘became poor.’” He explains that the proclamation of the Gospel “is itself the prime form of charity.” You are invited to join with parishioners across the Diocese as they “Walk Together in the Light of Christ” proclaiming the Gospel by supporting the many ministries and services made possible through gifts to the 2017 Annual Appeal throughout the 11 counties of our Diocese.

CATHOLIC MEDIA & COMMUNICATIONS:

“Giving everyone the opportunity to read, see and hear the Good News.”

Spreading the Gospel and the message of our Catholic faith is the vital mission of the Catholic Media and Communications Office of the Diocese of Scranton. This is why we provide a wide-ranging media program that offers print, online and broadcasting services throughout our 11-county Diocese. The message is delivered through The Catholic Light, the official newspaper of the Diocese which is delivered to 46,000 households; Catholic Television (CTV), the Diocesan television station; and the Diocesan website. CTV reaches more than 235,000 homes, hospitals and nursing facilities broadcasting the daily Mass and many other faith-based programs. The Diocesan website is an excellent online resource for information about life and events in the Diocese, including videos of the daily Mass and the special liturgies celebrated at St. Peter’s Cathedral and Bishop Bambera’s homilies.

Text To Give

Next Weekend is “Text to Give” Weekend: Don’t leave your cell phone at home or in the car. Bring it with you to Mass. Next Sunday is “Text to Give” Weekend throughout the Diocese. Parishioners who haven’t made a pledge or a gift—or who wish to increase their gift— will be able to do so by texting Appeal on their cell phones.

Where we stand

The great gift of mercy lies at the heart of all that we do as a church, and it also lies at the heart of the support we receive from the Diocesan Appeal: Holy Cross: $50,000.00 goal, 95% of goal! $47,132.00 in pledges and donations. Blessed Sacrament: $17,000.00 goal, 118% of goal! $20,002.00 in pledges and donations. Remember that 75% of all donations collected over goal are returned to the parish. God bless you for your generosity.
