Lex Cordis Caritas - The law of the heart is Love

by Bishop Thomas John Paprocki
Our theme for the 2016 Annual Catholic Services Appeal is: “Continuing the Mission of Charity.” The inspiration for this theme comes from St. Teresa of Calcutta, who was canonized a saint by Pope Francis earlier this month. St. Teresa of Calcutta, of course, was known for founding the Missionaries of Charity and for their charitable work with the poor. Your generous contributions to the Annual Catholic Services Appeal support the hard work and dedicated ministry of all of these people who make up our “diocese.” I personally beg you to respond generously to support me and our “diocese” by contributing at least one percent of your annual income to our Annual Catholic Services Appeal either by direct mail, by giving to the in-pew collection in your parish, or by donating online at www.dio.org/giving.
