We’ve all felt the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and during it all, your support has kept ministry alive at our parishes, and we are so very grateful. Your continued generosity has made many things possible, including our livestream Masses, online Bible studies, and so much more.
In addition, our diocesan ministries and outreach were also strengthened this past year through support of the Bishop’s Appeal, which raised over $2.7 million dollars in 2020! For the 8th year in a row, the Bishop’s Appeal has experienced growth, which has enabled all of us to continue to provide vital ministries throughout East Tennessee, including seminarian education, youth and young adult ministry, Christian formation and religious education, Catholic Charities, and the St. Mary’s Mobile Medical Clinic.
Thank you for all you do and have helped to provide!
– Most Reverend Richard F. Stika
