Ministries Supporting Our Lives


A message from Bishop Kettler

Bishop Donald J. Kettler

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

“For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free persons, and we were all given to drink of one Spirit.” These are the words of St. Paul in his First Letter to the Corinthians.

Through our baptism, we become members of the Body of Christ. As members of this body, we are sent on a mission to serve others as Christ did, bringing his love, mercy and compassion to all those in need.

We are a Church today that faces some serious challenges, and I remain committed to efforts that foster healing, improve accountability and maintain safe environments for everyone. These challenges, however, don’t diminish the good and much-needed ministry being done in our diocese.

The Bishop’s Annual Appeal supports these ministries, which include vocations, Catholic education, faith formation, marriage preparation, family life, pastoral planning, multicultural ministries, ministry to the divorced, and the TV Mass for the homebound.

I’m very grateful for every gift made to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal. These gifts support ministries at the core of our Church’s mission.

I ask you to please prayerfully discern a gift to the Appeal and join others around the diocese in supporting this important work. The need is great and your support — no matter the amount — makes a difference in the lives of so many others. Your gift goes directly to diocesan ministries and will not be used for any other purpose

Thank you, and may God bless you and your loved ones.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

+Donald J. Kettler
Bishop of Saint Cloud
