Bishop’s Annual Appeal

Contact Jackie Sutton, Development Director

The Bishop’s Annual Appeal occurs each year and asks parishioners to renew their commitment to aid our bishop in his work throughout the 23 counties that comprise our Diocese.  Funds donated to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal benefit our brothers and sisters throughout the Diocese and St. John Neumann Parish by supporting a variety of programs and services.

To view the video invitation from Matt & Ginny Schlater for the 2021 BAA, click here.

To give to the Appeal – please place your pledge envelope in the Offertory Basket at the entrances of church or go to the Diocesan website.

Bishop’s Annual Appeal Prayer

Loving and gracious God,
We come to you in thanksgiving for the assurances
of your mercy and your grace. Your goodness is
without measure and your faithfulness is everlasting.

God, you alone make every grace abundant.
Strengthen our faith and love, so that we may
become your good and faithful stewards.

Open our hearts to the mission and ministry of the
Bishop’s Annual Appeal and may the work, services,
and programs it supports be fruitful and good in
your sight.

In the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, we pray.
