“Where would we be without an awareness of God in our lives?”
That is the question that Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., asks in his video message for the 2020 Annual Catholic Appeal that was launched in all parishes of the Diocese Feb. 15 and 16.
Citing studies that report a growing number of Americans who do not practice their faith, or do not believe in God, Bishop O’Connell states, “It’s our job, as Disciples of Christ, to make it known that God is real and alive in the world today, and is the only answer to our needs.”
In introducing the Appeal, Bishop O’Connell reflected on its theme – a message taken from St. Augustine: “God gives where he finds empty hands.”
“As Christians, we are called to do the same,” he said, adding that “this year’s Annual Catholic Appeal is a new and impactful way you can share Christ with others.”
