Dear Co-workers in Christ:
Each year I appeal to your generosity on behalf of tens of thousands of individuals and families throughout the Diocese of Sacramento. This year, your faithful response has enabled Catholic Charities to respond to more than 362,000 neighbors in need.
The difference your dedication has made to so many is described in the enclosed 2020 Report of Gratitude. All the charities supported by the Appeal have expressed heartfelt gratitude for the funds from the Appeal. Unlike many other sources of support, the funds from the Appeal can be used for the greatest need. In this year of unexpected and unprecedented demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic, wildfires and the escalating homeless crisis in California, your generous sacrifices have bolstered the efforts to extend the love of our Lord Jesus to others.
God’s abundant mercy enables us to bring His tender care to so many of our neighbors in need. To Him be all the glory and praise. Be assured of my prayers. May the joy and peace of the Lord Jesus abide always with you and yours.
Bishop of Sacramento
