Jesus prayed, saying: “I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, as you Father, are in me and I in you, that they may also be in us, and the world may believe that you sent me.”
In this week’s Gospel. Jesus prayed for us. He prayed that all believers would experience the oneness that He shares with the Father. Oneness is not sameness or uniformity, but rather unity forged despite and through differences. Father and Son are perfect unity, while remaining distinct. Believers, though diverse in terms of culture, race, occupation, sex, and age, are declared one because they have in common the most important thing of all: faith in Christ (Gal 3:28). He prayed, too, for those who, through our discipleship, believe. Are you a good disciple? Do you lead others to Christ through your words and actions?
Allow your faith to transform you.

House of Charity ~ Bishops Annual Appeal
Filling the Darkness With Light
The funds received for the House of Charity Bishops Annual Appeal are restricted to specific ministries and programs. Donations do not fund the administration of the House of Charity Appeal, so that 100% of every gift can go to support the many diocesan programs.
12% of all donations received go to Vocations, Seminarian & Permanent Diaconate Formation, and Care of Elderly Priests.
The huge responsibility of overseeing the promotion of vocations to the priesthood and religious life as well as the diaconate is a serious undertaking.
Please consider how you will support the House of Charity this year. Please click on this link to be directed to the Diocesan website where you can watch the campaign video or donate online.
