Dear Friends in Christ:
Each year I appeal to your generosity on behalf of tens of thousands of individuals and families in need of assistance throughout the Diocese of Sacramento. This year, the faithful response of Catholic households has enabled Catholic Charities to help more than 314,000 sisters and brothers.
Lives touched by this generous support is described in the 2021 Report of Gratitude.
All charities supported by the Appeal have expressed heartfelt gratitude. In this year of continued demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic, wildfires and the escalating homeless crisis in California, 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
