WHY THE CONCERN?
The Catholic faithful through the centuries have trusted their Bishops and Priests to use their donated hard earned money for the glory of God and His Church. Many Catholics who are faithful to the Church and Her Mission still give willingly and generously to the Bishop’s Appeal every year. However, disturbing trends in the Church at large and locally call us to step back and reflect on the good of the Bishop’s Annual Appeal.
Although the BAA claims to use it’s donated money for a great good, and in some part probably does, the pandemic lockdown of 2020 and recent news in the Diocese raises serious concerns.
