Your gift to the 2023 Good Shepherd Campaign
goes toward the formation of seminarians and priests,
and the pastoral efforts in support of moving
forward, with hope, in our parishes.
The overall financial objective:
$ 400 000
Our diocese has experienced an awakening. Emerging from the pandemic, our activities have resumed, especially the celebration of the Eucharist in person. We are now moving forward, with hope. What a blessing!
Since last fall, many of us have seized this opportunity to join a Household of Faith where, in small groups, we have established a deeper relationship with Jesus by meditating on the Gospel and on our lives, sharing our discoveries and wonder with one another.
Through these experiences, our families, friends, colleagues and communities - indeed, our very lives - are enriched and filled with Christ's loving purpose. It is thanks to Him that we can move forward with hope. Likewise, our commitment to one another and to our Church is strengthened. With Jesus the Good Shepherd, we enter into deeper, more life-giving relationships in our parishes and in the world we are called to serve by our baptism.
In responding to Christ's call, our pastors and seminarians recognize that they too are to be in touch with the family of believers and with today’s world. They open the Word of God to us, they offer each of us the Eucharist and the whole sacramental life. They bring us together in intimate union with Jesus and with all the faithful.
The Good Shepherd Campaign provides ongoing formation for priests, helping them to move forward with hope in their pastoral work. Such pastors, working with committed lay people, can truly move forward, with hope, helping our Church to grow and flourish.
I ask you, dear faithful, to give generously to the Good Shepherd Campaign so that we can continue to move forward in our efforts to evangelize and build a better world.
With gratitude, in Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd,
Archbishop Albert LeGatt
