2018 Bishop's Annual Appeal

Lighting a Fire in the Heart of our World

As a faithful supporter of the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, you have helped to make our diocese a wonderful place where God is loved and living and working in some amazing ways.  Thanks to people like you, we are promoting and nurturing vocations to the priesthood and religious life, strengthening marriages and families, and caring for the poor and vulnerable.  With your help, we can continue to build effective faith formation and leadership programs, and bring Christ’s saving message to all people through our renewed evangelization efforts and other important ministries.

Please accept my sincere thanks for your consistent, sacrificial giving to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal and know of my prayers for you and your loved ones, especially as we celebrate Thanksgiving and the upcoming Nativity of Our Lord!

With renewed best wishes, I remain

Yours in Christ,

Most Rev. James F. Checchio, JCD, MBA
Bishop of Metuchen
