The Diocesan Annual Campaign provides resources, expertise, guidance and support for more than 90 ministries and programs throughout the 15 counties of the Diocese of Harrisburg. Gifts from donors like you sustain, expand and support our ongoing evangelization efforts, provide continuing education programs for our Catholic schools and Religious Education programs, seminarians, clergy and permanent deacons, and investments in pro-life activities. Now, more than ever, the programs and ministries that received funding from the Diocesan Annual Campaign need your prayers and steadfast support. Your gift, no matter the size, truly makes a difference. On behalf of those who benefit from our ministries, please accept our heartfelt appreciation and deep gratitude.
The Most Holy Eucharist is the center of our lives as Catholics. This year marks the conclusion of a National Eucharistic Revival throughout the United States which has focused on encouraging a renewed appreciation for this incredible gift of the real presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, and its transforming power in the lives of all believers. Here in our Diocese, the Revival will culminate with celebrations in June 2024. In this context, our theme for the 2024 Diocesan Annual Campaign is NOURISHED BY FAITH. Our Lord Jesus, present in the Eucharist, nourishes us to live our faith more vibrantly; to be more visibly and recognizably Catholic Christians.
Your gift to the Diocesan Annual Campaign supports more than ninety (90) vital ministries and programs to assist parishes and help to strengthen parish life, evangelization and outreach to youth and young adults, Catholic education in our schools and in religious education programs, our services to the poor provided through Catholic Charities, and the formation of our future priests and permanent deacons, as well as care for our retired priests.
Strengthened by the presence of Christ in the Eucharist, we are challenged to respond with grateful hearts to advance the mission of the Church. By sharing our gifts with others, the real presence of Jesus is made visible through us.
I ask you to prayerfully consider your gift to the 2024 Diocesan Annual Campaign. If you are unable to make a financial gift at this time, please continue to pray for me and for the success of our efforts. Please pray also for our clergy and religious and all those who serve in our Diocese. You, your family and your intentions are in my prayers. May God bless you and our beloved Diocese of Harrisburg.
Sincerely in Christ,
Most Reverend Timothy C. Senior
Bishop of Harrisburg
