 Diocesan Lenten Appeal 2020 | Grow in the Lord

Donate Now ​A Message from Bishop Malesic

As the Lenten season approaches, we are reminded that Jesus rejected the lure of fame, power and wealth when tempted by Satan and instead gave his life in service to others. He asks us to follow his example. Jesus used the parable of the sower and the seed to remind us that we must be good soil so that our faith in him may grow and multiply. Ultimately, we are called to produce good fruit for God by sharing our God-given blessings with others. This year, I am asking you to help our faith community Grow in the Lord through your generous stewardship.
