A gift to the Diocesan Annual Campaign supports the ministries of the Diocese of Harrisburg to meet the social services and
ministerial needs of the people in our 15 counties.
The demand for services provided by the Diocese and implemented at the parish and community level increases every year. As we begin the 2019 Diocesan Annual Campaign, previously known as the Bishop’s Annual Lenten Appeal, we are reminded to accept the call that Jesus gives us to be good stewards of the gifts we have received. With our combined resources and in partnership with your local parish, we are able to provide food for hungry families, formation education for seminarians, and sacramental preparation for our youth, newly engaged couples and those adults preparing to enter the church, just to name a few of the many ministries supported by the Diocesan Annual Campaign. Inspired by the call of the Gospel to be firm in our faith and lead lives dedicated to being disciples of the Lord, we are encouraged by our theme for 2019 of “Faith Forward.”
~Bishop Ronald W. Gainer, Bishop of Harrisburg
