Catholic Post’s ‘Delivering Unity Campaign’ is now under way
Photo Caption: “Keeping Faith in Focus” is the theme of The Catholic Post’s 2014 Delivering Unity Campaign.
Reading and supporting The Catholic Post is “a vital way of keeping faith the focus in our homes,” said Bishop Daniel R. Jenky, CSC, in opening the diocesan newspaper’s 2014 Delivering Unity Campaign.
Contributions not only ensure delivery of The Catholic Post’s print edition to your home throughout the year, but also support the wider sharing of vital information and inspiration through both print and digital means.
Contributions may be made safely and securely online anytime here, or by calling The Catholic Post during business hours at 1-800-340-5630.
For those wishing to contribute by check, envelopes were provided via mail to the 26,000 households receiving The Catholic Post. An envelope and additional information is also provided in the Feb. 2 issue of the newspaper.
Suggested levels of support are outlined here, including information on the Msgr. Peters Society and opportunities to sponsor pages of The Catholic Post. Because of the generous response to last year’s campaign, more than 26,000 homes were informed and united with every issue of the newspaper in 2013.
The traditional subscription level of $25 has remained the same since 2008.
Thank you for your support. Following is the full text of Bishop Jenky’s letter:
Jan. 24, 2014
+Feast of St. Francis de Sales, patron of journalists
To the Clergy, Religious and Laity of the Diocese of Peoria
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
Pope Francis has captured the imagination and affection of people around the globe. In a world filled with distractions, our new pope’s humble acts and challenging teaching always bring the focus back to the good news of Jesus Christ and our response in faith.
Sadly, the opposite is true of other voices shaping today’s culture. We have more information sources than ever, but many bring confusion rather than clarity for Catholic living. For Catholics of the Diocese of Peoria, a vital way of keeping faith the focus in our homes is by supporting and reading The Catholic Post, our fine diocesan newspaper.
The Catholic Post’s 2014 Delivering Unity Campaign is now under way. The annual drive funds the sharing of Catholic information and inspiration through both print and digital means. Your gift helps spread the teaching of Pope Francis and other church leaders, brings timely photos and news stories of Catholic life into homes throughout central Illinois, and promotes charity, vocations, Catholic education, and more.
Because of the generous response to this campaign a year ago, every issue of The Catholic Post in 2013 united and informed 26,000 households of our diocesan family. If your home was among those benefiting — or if you currently do not receive the newspaper — please consider a subscription-level donation of $25 this year. Those able to invest more become partners in the mission of The Catholic Post, helping to bring a regular focus on faith to the homes of neighbors perhaps most in need.
Thanking you for your support and assuring you of my prayers, I am
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Daniel R. Jenky, C.S.C.
Bishop of Peoria
