ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL 2019

Reverend Andrzej Klocek

St. Catharine of Alexandria R.C. Church

(…)

Allow me to offer my congratulations to you and the parishioners of St. Catharine of Alexandria Parish on reaching your 2019 Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) goal of $21,426 in pledges. You and your Appeal Team, as well as your parishioners, are all to be commended for the diligence, sacrifice and personal commitment each has made in this important endeavor for the Church in Brooklyn and Queens.

Your leadership and example in implementing the local Appeal is an inspiration to all. It is because of the willingness of your faithful parishioners to answer the call of Christ to care for each other and build up the Church that so many will be helped. Because of the collective generosity of St. Catharine of Alexandria parish, the presence of Christ Jesus will be brought to so many through Catholic Charities, Catholic Migration Services, Vocations Support, Catholic Schools Scholarship Assistance, Chaplaincies, Care for Retired Priests, Parish Assistance, Faith Formation, and your own parish.

Each of you have responded to the 2019 Annual. Catholic Appeal in thanks for all that is accomplished through parish and diocesan ministry, recognizing the hope that goes hand-in-hand with your charity. It is my prayer that your parishioners will continue to emphasize participation in the Appeal, while understanding the magnitude of the impact that our Annual Catholic Appeal has on all the people who make up the Diocese in Brooklyn and Queens.

Thanking you again for your leadership and asking the Lord to extend His choicest blessings upon you and the people of St. Catharine of Alexandria Parish, I am

Sincerely in Christ,

Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Ph. D., D.D.

Bishop of Brooklyn
