This weekend marks the kick-off to our 2022 and 7th Annual Eparchial Appeal. The Appeal will run April 23/24 to June 4/5, 2022.
The theme of the 2022 Annual Eparchial Appeal is “For much will be required of those to whom much is given” (Luke 12:48). The theme doesn’t only refer to the personal blessings that have been bestowed on us by God, but also, we must consider the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for our salvation. Therefore, because of His sacrifice and His great love for us, we are asked to, in return, love greatly and use everything He has bestowed on us for His glory.
Thanks to your generosity, prayers and your kind support over the past six years, the Eparchial Appeal has been successful in raising just over $942,983 for Eparchial Ministries, Bishop Roborecki Foundation and Parishes through the Parish Rebate Program. Your support of the Appeal continues to nurture, grow, preserve, and strengthen our Ukrainian Catholic Faith and to make our parishes vibrant. A heartfelt and sincere THANK YOU for your support.
The 2022 Annual Eparchial Goal is set at $250,000. This may seem like a big number, however, when broken down to an amount per each Parish Family in the Eparchy, it amounts to approximately $110 per each Parish Family. However, we know that only approximately 26% of the Faithful in the Eparchy support the Appeal. Therefore, we are asking those Parish Families who can do so to please make a $110 donation on behalf of your family, and another $110 on behalf of another family who may not be in a financial position to make a $110 donation to the Appeal.
The future sustainability of these Eparchial Ministries is dependent on a fundraising effort through the Annual Eparchial Appeal. Most of the programs offered through the Eparchial Ministries cannot be offered by individual Parishes because of limited resources, both financial and human. That is why it is so critical that the Faithful of our Eparchy continue to collectively ensure that the Eparchy can provide these Eparchial Ministry programs by supporting the Annual Eparchial Appeal.
Over the next few weeks, you will have the opportunity to learn more about our Eparchial Ministries and how they contribute to create Vibrant Parishes as a place to encounter the Living Christ.
In the next week or so, you will be receiving your Annual Eparchial Appeal Letter Package in the mail, which will contain detailed information on the various Eparchial ministries and programs supported by the 2022 Appeal. As it has in the last six years, your gift to the 2022 Appeal will make a significant difference and will serve as a powerful witness of God’s love and mercy.
With gratitude and appreciation, we ask you to please find it in your heart to support the 2022 Annual Eparchial Appeal.
