Annual Bishop's Appeal

The theme of the 2023 Bishop’s Appeal is “Open wide the doors to Christ” calling us to evangelization, welcoming new people to a life-changing encounter with the living Christ who is present in and through His Body, the Church.


This appeal makes possible essential services to all parishes and communities across the U.S. and Canada. A


As parishioners, our gift to the Bishop’s Appeal is a visible manifestation of our connection to our Bishop and to our brothers and sisters across the Ordinariate.

Our Parish has a goal of $3,000 for this year’s appeal.

Please consider a sacrificial commitment to the Bishop’s Appeal that will help Bishop Lopes and your Ordinariate family proclaim Christ to the world.
