A Message from Cardinal Dolan
A blessed new year!
This is a significant year for the Cardinal’s Annual Stewardship Appeal as we come together to celebrate its 40th anniversary. It is not only special because of the milestone itself, but also because of the work that has been accomplished throughout four decades, which assisted over 290 parishes with millions of parishioners in ten counties, thanks to generous and loyal supporters over the years.
It has not been easy for our Church: 2018 was most challenging and upsetting for us all. You can be assured that the Archdiocese of New York is at the forefront in safeguarding the well-being of our most vulnerable children, and all who seek refuge within our greater community. Not a dime of money donated to the Cardinal’s Annual Stewardship Appeal goes to the expenses of this crisis. To learn more, please visit the archdiocesan website to read through detailed information about our efforts to correct mistakes from the past, and guide our faithful towards a brighter future.
Your financial assistance will allow us to continue supporting our parishes when they have emergency capital and operational needs, educate our 75,000 youth both academically and spiritually, prepare over 25 future priests and deacons, and assist over 60 clergy and religious in their advanced years.
For this special year marking the Cardinal’s Annual Stewardship Appeal 40th anniversary, I hope you will prayerfully consider making a donation. I pray that we continue opening our doors to those who need our help the most and I ask for your continued faith in our Church.
With renewed gratitude and prayerful best wishes for 2019, I may remain,
Faithfully in Christ,
Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan
