“The commitment that you will make through your gift will touch thousands of lives in ways we may never know. The vocation of marriage and the families of our Diocese will be strengthened through the Office of Family and Respect Life Ministries. Catechists, teachers, and sport coaches will receive training and support through the Office of Evangelization and Catechesis and Sports Ministry; Catholic schools and after-school programs will find their support so that children and young people can grow in the beauty of our Catholic faith. Ministries on college and university campuses will be strengthened and supported so our sons and daughters will know that the Church is still there for them on Campus. A homeless mother and her unborn child will be provided with hope, food, and shelter at Lourdeshouse Maternity Home. The Lenten Appeal enables ministries that individual parishes cannot supply.”
– Bishop Ronald W. Gainer
Because of your generosity to the Lenten Appeal, individuals, families, and local communities experience the merciful presence of Christ through the many services and outreach programs provided throughout the Diocese of Harrisburg.Consider the multitude of children who are taught the faith through our Catholic schools and religious education programs. See how the boundaries of our Church extend beyond our own properties to the young adults benefiting from campus ministry programs, the retreats and camps meeting the needs of the spiritually and physically limited, the values of integrity and honor being taught to the youth in our scouting programs. From parish offices to athletic fields, the work of faith begins with worship and reaches out toward every dimension of our lives to fashion a society that reveres the dignity of life and safeguards the inalienable values which make us truly human.Through the Bishop’s Annual Lenten Appeal, you sustain these programs and works of mercy.
