ARCHBISHOP'S ANNUAL APPEAL
Last year Pope Francis challenged us to live ever more faithfully and generously one of the most fundamental truths of the Gospel, namely, that we be "merciful even as our heavenly Father is merciful." ... I invite you to open wide your heart, and to share generously your time, talent, and treasure, in order to bear witness to the love and mercy that God has shown to you.  This website illustrates just some of the ways that Moved by Mercy applies the Gospel to everyday life.   (excerpt from Archbishop Blair's letter)
You can donate online here or learn about other ways to contribute.
