2020-21 Diocesan Annual Appeal

Life has changed. It is important to realize, however, that Christ’s love for us has not changed and our love of Christ has not changed. One of the great missions of the Church is to provide hope and help, and that, too, has not changed.

The work and the spirit of the Catholic Church must carry on! We must not lose hope. We must not lose sight of what Christ calls us to do. The Catholic Church is still important!

The Catholic Church is still relevant! His Church Is Still Here, His Church Still Provides, and His Church Is You and Me describes the great work of uplifting and inspiring those around us and leading each other to the Kingdom of Heaven.

When challenged about the relevance of our faith and its effectiveness in our lives, we must remain resolute about the person of Jesus Christ. Every day we witness how hope impacts the lives of so many of God’s people here in our beloved diocese. Through our many ministries supported by the Diocesan Annual Appeal, we continue to ‘Love Thy Neighbor.’

I ask for your generosity to our Diocesan Annual Appeal. Our 38 ministries, funded and supported by the Diocesan Annual Appeal, serve many of our neighbors, our brothers and sisters. They need our prayers and assistance. These ministries also enable us to share the joy of the Gospel.

Thank you for your generosity to our Diocesan Annual Appeal. Thank you for keeping the faith.
Thank you for remaining hopeful.

— Most Rev. William Patrick Callahan,
Bishop of the Diocese of La Crosse
