The Bishop's Appeal
Our Bishop, serving as "chief priest and pastor" to the clergy
and people of the Diocese of Albany, has been blessed to share in some of the most
important aspects of peoples' lives, both the joys and sorrows. Through his travels
throughout the diocese, he has become aware of the needs of fellow brothers and sisters
in Christ, in addition to the needs of worthy Christian ministries in the Diocese and
the greater church. By the grace of God and the generosity of past benefactors to the
Annual Bishop's Appeal, the Lord has enabled him to assist in ways that he could never
have done otherwise. The proceeds of prior Bishop's Appeals have helped others by:
Assisting with expenses for individuals with limited or no medical coverage.
Providing Beaver Cross Scholarships to needy children.
Providing counseling for Clergy and their families during difficult times.
Helping sponsor The Bible Symposium, the SLC's Youth Intern Program, the Oaks of
Righteousness Inner-City Ministry, the Albany Refugee Resettlement Ministry, and
other parish and diocesan ministry initiatives.
And there are many more. As we near the end of the year with an ever growing passion for
Jesus and a fresh awareness of God's love and many blessings in our lives, please
prayerfully consider (after first supporting your local parish) to join the Bishop and
his wife Karen in supporting this year's Bishop's Appeal so that this important ministry
can continue to help those in need as well as support important Christian ministries
that are making a difference in peoples' lives.
