Annual Bishop's Appeal

"The generosity of the faithful in our diocese in the Annual Bishop’s Appeal is a testament to their faith and love  for God and His Church. I am very grateful for the sacrifices of so many to ensure that the ministries and good works of our diocese continue." ~Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades

The Bishop’s Appeal supports the diverse ministries, apostolates, and services of the Church in our diocese. At the same time, it promotes our unity in supporting the Church’s works of evangelization, education, pastoral care, and charity. Through your generosity in the Bishop’s Appeal, you are supporting and expressing your love for Christ and one another and our unity as one body in Christ. View this year's Appeal Video.

Thank you for your generosity in supporting this year's Appeal. Any funds collected by Saint Joseph Parish beyond our parish's goal are returned to the parish to support our parish. Pledge forms are available in our church or at the parish office. You may also donate online now.
