I want you to be aware that the Rockford Diocesan Appeal kicks off this weekend, June 6-7. Your personal Annual Diocesan Appeal letter from the Diocese was sent to you this week. Additionally, the Observer has published and mailed a special Diocesan Appeal edition today, June 4. This is also available online.
Attached is Bishop Malloy's YouTube videos which contain helpful information on how your contributions benefit the wide range of programs the Rockford Diocese sponsors in our communities including Youth Programs, Seminarian Education, Food Pantries and more.
I look forward to seeing many of you as we begin to return to Mass this weekend and in the coming weeks.
God bless you for your patience and please contact the parish if we can provide any help to you.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Ruben Herrera
