Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Throughout the past 15 months, the need for strong communications has become even more important, especially digital communications. The weekend of June 20, our Diocese will take up a collection for the Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC). This collection directly supports the communication ministry of our Diocese and the communication projects of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).
Because of your support of this collection, our Communications Office supported parishes with their live streaming and social media needs throughout the pandemic as well as made it possible for many of our Diocesan conferences to take place virtually. Many of our digital communication initiatives, include the Diocesan website, our podcasts and radio program, and our videos are all possible because of generous support to this collect. I know this time of pandemic has been very difficult, but I ask you to please prayerfully consider supporting this collection so that we may continue using communications to share the love of Christ.
Nationally, the USCCB supported the production of the documentary film Revolution of the Heart: The Dorothy Day Story through this collection. Dorothy Day was an American activist and Catholic Worker Movement founder. She lived her Catholic faith in an intentional way that still inspires the work of those who speak out on behalf of the poor and marginalized. Her life of Christian virtue has led to her being declared “Venerable” by the Church, putting her on the path to beatification.
This documentary film looks into her life as a journalist, peace activist, and Catholic whose Catholic Worker Houses show hospitality to the poorest and most vulnerable in our midst. With assistance from the Catholic Communication Campaign, this production became a reality, with broadcasts on public television and screenings in venues around the country. When you support the Catholic Communication Campaign, you bring stories of the Catholic faith in action, like Dorothy Day’s story, to light for others.

Sincerely in Christ,
Most Reverend Ronald W. Gainer
Bishop of Harrisburg
