Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Thanks to the generosity of donors to the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal our Church is able to provide much needed assistance to thousands of people each year. By uniting our efforts as an Archdiocesan family of faith we serve people in ways above and beyond what any one parish or organization could accomplish alone. We are truly Stronger Together, which is the theme of the Appeal for 2022.
Stronger Together is not just a description of our charitable outreach, but also our unity in Christ whenever we hear His Word and receive Him in Holy Communion at Mass. Mass sends us forth Stronger Together to put our faith into practice by loving God above all things and our neighbor as ourselves. Living our faith means helping others spiritually and materially, caring for our elderly and sick, sheltering the homeless and feeding our hungry. And it means providing spiritual care in a wounded world.
Please share generously the time, talent, and treasure that God has given you, so that together we can meet the challenge of helping provide
for the spiritual and material well-being of individuals, families, and communities throughout Hartford, New Haven, and Litchfield Counties.
This brochure illustrates just some of the ways that Stronger Together can make a difference in the life of our Church and our communities, taking to heart the words of St. Paul, that we “pursue what leads to peace and to building up one another” (Rom 14:19).
God bless you.
The Most Reverend Leonard P. Blair
Archbishop of Hartford
