"The Archdiocesan Annual Appeal reminds us that we are part of the Body of Christ, that we belong to others whom we do not see, and they belong to us. St. Paul reminds us of that in his first letter to the Corinthians: ‘By one Spirit we are all baptized into one Body’ (1 Cor. 12:13). Through the AAA, we are able to express our solidarity with those sisters and brothers whose needs are often greater than our own.” - Fr. Greg Bonfiglio, S.J.
The theme of this year’s appeal is “For the needy will never be forgotten, nor will the hope of the afflicted ever fade”. Psalm 9:19.
