Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I am pleased to announce that Growing in Faith, Giving in Love will serve as the theme and inspiration for the 2020 Archbishop’s Annual Appeal of the Archdiocese of Hartford.

The Annual Appeal once again challenges our charity as a united family of faith, and makes it possible for us to share what we have with those in need and to sustain the life of our local church. We are all part of God’s family and we have a responsibility to care for one another, especially by providing for the spiritual, moral and material well-being of each and all.  The 2020 Archbishop’s Annual Appeal, Growing in Faith, Giving in Love, presents us with a unique opportunity to combine all of our individual gifts in order to accomplish even more together as an archdiocese.

In urging your support for this year’s Annual Appeal, I also invite you to look for ways to strengthen your own faith and share with others the good news of the gospel.  As Jesus says: “What you have received as a gift, give as a gift.”  So don’t be afraid to think about what your Catholic faith in Jesus means to you, and then share that good news with others.  Share it with your family and friends, your neighbors and co-workers.  Be bold as the first Christians were, and invite others to join you at Mass!

As people of faith, we are called to care for one another and for those in need.  So please be generous in sharing the “time, talent, and treasure” you have received from God, and make of it a gift that can benefit the spiritual and material well-being of individuals, families, and communities throughout Hartford, New Haven, and Litchfield Counties.

Please review this brochure as it illustrates some of the ways that Growing in Faith, Giving in Love will make a difference in the lives of many.

God bless you.

The Most Reverend Leonard P. Blair
Archbishop of Hartford
