Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
I chose the theme of this year’s annual appeal, Our Joyful Return to the Lord, in hopes that you would know the joy of resting in the open arms of Jesus in difficult times and to encourage you to return to the Lord with your whole selves. It is this continuous conversion and selfless giving that I see vividly present in our north and central Georgia community.
I invite you to read the words of Fr. Miller Gomez Ruiz, Bill Clarke, and Eglee Treber, and consider participating in this year’s Archbishop’s Annual Appeal. Look at the numbers and impact your contribution has in the archdiocese of Atlanta. These examples are just a small snapshot of the important work being done in our local church – only made possible by your generous donation to the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal, the main funding source for all of the ministerial, outreach, education, formation and discipleship work of our archdiocese.
