About the Appeal

My Dear Friends in Christ:

As Archbishop of Boston, I am deeply grateful for all that you do to help strengthen and renew our Church. Your faithful commitment to this work is a sign of hope and a true blessing—so important to those who have been helped, and so meaningful to me.

Thank you for support of the 2015 Catholic Appeal. Please be assured of my prayers and deepest appreciation for your generosity as we carry out the mission of our Church.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Cardinal Seán O’Malley, OFM, Cap.
