Bishop’s Appeal Thanks from Bishop Chilton

Dear People of the Diocese of Chicago,

In November I asked for your support of the Bishop’s Appeal as a gesture of gratitude for all that God has given us. It was important to me that we close out this most challenging year in our diocesan life with a commitment to our shared ministry, and to the programs and people who will continue to make a difference in our communities and in this church we love.

I am delighted to share my thanks for all who gave, raising nearly $50,000 before the end of 2021. These contributions, along with those made to the Convention Offering and the Easter Appeal, are a true testament to the light of Christ in our communities and will help fund ministries in our diocese and beyond.

It is a great blessing to share ministry with you here in the Diocese of Chicago. Happy New Year to you all.
