Bishop's Appeal - 2020

Dear Brothers, Sisters and Loving Children in Jesus Christ,

Glory to God in the Highest! As we enter the new year 2021, let us glorify God by our love and good deeds. The world may fade, the stars may fall, the seasons may change, but the God who has been our help in ages past is our hope for years to come. In Him we have permanence, stability, joy unshakable, and life unending. Let the Lord be with you all.

I would like to thank you for your sacrificial gift to the Diocese in the past years. It’s with sincere gratitude and appreciation that I acknowledge your continued generosity and support. Every penny given to the Diocese is significant and much more than a donation, which transforms into a unified effort. The core of our Appeal is grounded in the spirit of charity and unity.

In a genuine spirit of gratitude, I humbly ask you to make a gift to the Bishop’s appeal. Your sacrificial gift will help to function 35 ministries of our diocese through 44 parishes and 40 missions over 28 states in the United States. As your Bishop, I invite you to participate in our Diocesan Annual appeal 2020 by making a contribution in the suggested range of $250, $400, $500, $750, $1000 or $--- by a check drawn in favor of “St. Thomas SyroMalabar Diocese’’ and send it through your local parish with a memo of ‘Diocesan Appeal 2020’ which then will be sent to the Diocese. You may also contribute by signing up for an automatic monthly payment, by filling out the form below.   

May God bless you in this New Year with firm faith, courage and strength so you may do what you do always out of love for God and neighbor.
