Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I was installed as the fifth bishop of Monterey on January 29, 2019. Over the last year I have been traveling throughout our Diocese getting to know most of our parish communities and learning about the many ways we put into practice our important Diocesan ministries. I am moved by the vibrant and life-giving ways in which we have accepted the invitation to “….go out and bear fruit by loving one another.” (John 15:16, 17)
A concrete way in making this love real is by the opportunity you have in participating in the 2020 Annual Ministry Appeal, Growing in Faith. By sharing your gift of treasure in this Appeal, you enable our Diocesan church to participate in Jesus’ invitation to assist others in growing in their faith in ways that an individual parish cannot do on its own.
I ask you to pray about the gift that you might be able to share in making our Annual Ministry Appeal a success. Be assured of my prayers for you and your family. May God bless you always!
Sincerely in Christ,
Most Reverend Daniel E. Garcia
