Carrying the LIGHT of FAITH
From family life to Catholic formation to crisis response and support for vocations, the Bishop’s Services Appeal offers spiritual hope and practical assistance to those in our communities in immediate need of God’s provision and care. Generous parishioners make it possible. In 2020 we celebrate the 150th anniversary of St. Joseph, a simple village carpenter, as patron and protector of the Universal Church. Each time Joseph held the child Jesus, taught Him or guided Him, Joseph was carefully Carrying the Light of Faith—our theme for this year’s Bishop’s Services Appeal. Pope Pius IX declared Joseph to be “God’s greatest treasure.”
We invite you to give of your treasure just as Joseph opened his heart and home to Mary and Jesus. Your gift will Carry the Light of Faith to those served by direct service ministries within the Diocese of Lafayette.
