2015 Journey of Hearts & Hands
i share, we care
“What we give is what we have from you.”
~ 1 Chronicles 29:14
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Our stewardship begins when we recognize that all is a gift from our gracious God. In our deepening awareness of God’s tender love, we learn to give of ourselves through time, talent, and treasure, out of a sincere gratitude for all of God’s blessings. Pope Francis leads by example and calls us to a stewardship of hope, asking us to “care more deeply, to give more generously, and to love more tenderly.” We all have the power, within us, to make a difference in our parish and in our communities when we heed the invitation to share God’s bountiful generosity.
This year our theme, "i share, we care," will serve as our guide as we prayerfully consider our gift to the Appeal. As outlined in the enclosed Journey of Hearts & Hands brochure, the Annual Appeal again seeks to raise $750,000 to support our programs and ministries. I invite you to prayerfully consider making a pledge that can be paid over the next twelve months. All gifts to the Appeal will be helpful and appreciated, regardless of the amount.
A gift to our Appeal will help to ensure that our mission as Church will have a firm financial foundation to meet the pastoral needs and challenges that are before us. Together we can help provide for the needs of our people, and also provide for the needs of all those we are called to serve in our midst. Thank you for all you do to support the work and mission of the Church.
Most Reverend Gary Gordon
Bishop of Victoria
