Dear Friends in Christ,
God is at work in our midst.
He is transforming us and our world. Just as clay modeled by the hands of a potter becomes a beautiful vessel, so too does God's love transform our souls.
In Jesus, His life, death and resurrection, and in the ongoing work of the Holy Spirit, we have come to know the power and grace of God's transformative love. This love propels us to action, a sign of our faith and love of God.
Your contributions to the Archbishop's Appeal join with others throughout the Archdiocese, helping to bring God's transforming grace to places of need. May the Lord pour down abundant blessings on you and your parish community.
Yours in Christ,
Archbishop Donald Bolen,
Archdiocese of Regina
