"I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another." - John 13:34.
Your gift to the 2011 Archbishop’s Annual Appeal funds many vital ministries and programs. It is a meaningful way of Serving the Lord by Serving Others.
Catholic Charities was created as a witness to the scriptural commands to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and give hope to those in need. Faith in Jesus Christ puts the Christian in communion with Him and His teachings about our obligations to assist and protect the weak and vulnerable. From adoption services to helping the elderly, Catholic Charities touches the lives of every age group.
The Archdiocesan School’s Office participates in the mission of the church by promoting and fostering excellence in Catholic school education. It fulfills its purpose by affirming and supporting all members of the educational community, empowering them to witness to the Gospel and rendering service with compassion. The Archdiocese provides funding to many schools that are not able to sustain themselves and helps them to remain viable and of service to the communities of faith that they serve.
The Youth and Young Adult Ministry (CYO) connects young people to the teachings of the Church at a time in their lives when they are vulnerable to stray from the mission of Jesus Christ.
Parishes are the center of our lives as Catholics. From our Baptism to eventually our funeral, the church is always there to guide us to the hope of eternal salvation. The appeal strengthens parishes financially so they may continue to provide hope and spiritual guidance to the community.
The Church of Newark is committed to providing the necessary resources for our future priests.
The three seminaries operated by the Archdiocese of Newark continue to attract men who want to dedicate their lives to the Church.
Our retired priests, many who are still active in the community after dedicating their lives to serving others, receive housing and medical care.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration.
