Spreading the Light of God’s Love

Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades talks about this year's Annual Bishop's Appeal theme, telling us about what it means for him personally.

The Light of God's Love throughout the World.

Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades discusses the beauty of the Church universal, a beauty that we should never take for granted. We are one body in Christ throughout the world. 

The Light of God's Love through Ministry.

Our diocesan Catholic schools, young adult ministry, and seminarian education are among the many diocesan ministries that would not be possible without the support of the Annual Bishop's Appeal. Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades shares about the scope of the church on our diocesan level, made possible by your investment in the Annual Bishop's Appeal.

The Light of God's Love as an Instrument of Healing.

Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades shares the importance of the Church's mission to be an instrument of healing to those suffering. "We encounter evil in our lives on this earth, and yet the Lord was to free us, He wants to liberate us from the power of sin."

The Light of God's Love Calms the Storm.

"Be still and know that I am God. As Catholics we have such a rich spiritual tradition...so many avenues where we can experience the peace and the comfort of our Lord." - Pray with Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades
