Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful –Luke 6:36
Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
As Jesus’ disciples, we are called to extend the mercy of Jesus to all. This 50th annual diocesan appeal invites us all to support and group the Chuch in the Diocese of Toledo.
Our theme, “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful,” was purposefully selected to reflect Pope Francis’ designation of the Jubilee Year of Mercy. In the words of Pop Francis, “Mery is the force that reawakens us to new life and instills in us the courage to look to the future with hope.”
We are all invited to live out this Jubilee Year as an extraordinary moment of grace and spiritual renewal which can further nurture and foster Holy Disciples, Holy Families, and Holy Vocations.
We ask you to consider making a gift of prayer for the success of the appeal and also to consider making a generous financial gift according to your means. Please join us in supporting the life transforming services our diocesan ministries provide. In the words of Pope Francis, “A little bit of mercy makes the world less cold and more just.”
God Bless You!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Daniel E. Thomas, Bishop of Toledo
Reverend John Miller, Clergy Chair
Pastor of Holy Trinity, Bucyrus & St. Joseph, Galion
