Welcome to the 2020- 2021 Annual Diocesan Appeal...
The Theme for this year’s Diocesan Appeal is CULTIVATE. As written in Genesis “The LORD God then took the man and settled him in the garden of Eden, to cultivate and care for it.” Genesis 2:15
In fact, everything we have from our gifts and talents to every possession are a Blessing from Him. In recognizing that all is a gift and His intent is for us to share our gifts freely knowing that from sharing we can open the eyes of our brothers and sisters to see Him. There is also the ability together in community to support our church and community financially. By supporting the Diocesan Appeal with your financial gift or simply by offering up a prayer that we can find the necessary resources to build up our greater church in our diocese and the church.
What are the many ways the Lord has Blessed us and how do we recognize His Love for us? In fact, everything we have from our gifts and talents to every possession are a Blessing from Him.

The Diocesan Appeal Logo is a representation of the beautiful landmarks that make up our great diocese. From the beauty of Chimney Rock in the West, to the windmills that run all across our sandhills, the Rivers that flow through our diocese, to our Mother Church, the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and finally the Holy Spirit that draws us all closer to Christ as One Holy and Apostolic church.
Thank you for letting God's Love affect you so that what you offer back to our Lord may be an ever more authentic response.
