"Seek and you will find." ~ Luke 11:9
God is here, right now, at our side. We can see him in the routine moments of our day and in the sacred moments of our lives. To find God, you have only to look.
The Catholic Services Appeal 2022 season is upon us, and we have much to celebrate in northern Michigan. We welcome our new bishop. We begin to enjoy warmer weather, and we honor our risen Lord. We look forward with hope as God continues to work in and through us.
Now is the time to renew our spirits and contemplate our blessings. Now is the ideal moment to recommit our time, talent and treasure to what we value most.
The CSA is a diocesan-wide campaign that supports the mission of the Catholic Church locally, regionally and globally. We are blessed to be part of a Universal Church, unified in the Body of Christ. The work of the Church requires careful stewardship and care. Just like we spend time and resources keeping our bodies healthy, we must do the same to nourish the Body of Christ.
The Catholic Services Appeal provides 75% of the Diocese of Gaylord’s annual operational budget and is therefore essential to the work of the Church in northern Michigan.
