2016 Bishop's Appeal


Christ and St. John's, Champlain Operation Christmas Child Christ and St. John's, Champlain Operation Christmas Child

Support the 2016 Bishop's Appeal!


The Bishop's Appeal is an opportunity to support the ministry of the Bishop in ministering to those in need both in the Diocese and throughout the wider church. Giving to the Bishop's appeal allows the Bishop to help those who are struggling financially, either with medical expenses, or with funeral expenses, or with general household expenses because of a job loss or other unexpected hardship.

Your support of the Bishop's Appeal also allows the Bishop to help many kids to attend Beaver Cross Camp or the Youth Rally at Convention who otherwise would not be able to do so, giving them the opporunity to experience the love of Jesus in their lives, some perhaps for the first time. It also allows the Bishop to give Deacons and Priests the opportunity to attend their respective retreats, helping them to rest and relax and be spiritually rejuvenated for their ministries.

But your support of the Bishop's Appeal doesn't just help those in the local area! The funds raised are also used to help our missionary friends in some of the most dangerous and desperately needy places in the world.

Ten percent of all the funds raised in this year's Bishop's Appeal will go to support our brothers and sisters in the Diocese of Maridi, South Sudan, who continue to be plagued by war and extreme poverty.
