First in a series on Bishop's Appeal

By Jeff Kurowski
Compass Assistant Editor

The annual Bishop's Appeal is a call to stewardship, said Bp. David Zubik in his homily highlighting the 2007 campaign, which continues to build upon the theme, "Sharing Our Faith."

"The Bishop's Appeal helps us as church to see ourselves as 'givers' rather than 'takers,' as stewards who share who we are and what we have for the honor of God and for the benefit of each other," he said. "By embracing prayer, service and sharing, we grow the church. Through the Bishop's Appeal, God's heart is made visible in us."

The target for the 2007 Bishop's Appeal is $5.25 million. Last year's campaign raised $4.97 million, an all-time high.   Full story ...
