One Faith. One Family.
Catholic Family Sharing Appeal 2017

This theme underscores the truth that our shared spiritual heritage is grounded in our one faith in Jesus Christ crucified and risen. He is at the center of who we are, how we live and therefore how we love our neighbor. We have rich examples of how we do that – from seminarian education to Newman centers and youth discipleship programs, and so much more, the Catholic Family Sharing Appeal touches all our lives. We invite you to watch Bishop Swain’s message and learn more here.
