Dear Pastors and Brothers and Sisters,
I would like to sincerely thank you ALL for your strong efforts and partnership with the Diocese of Stockton in the Bishop’s Ministry Appeal (BMA). The Bishop’s Ministry Appeal supports the many ministries, programs and services provided by the Diocese, which benefit all of our parishes.
The 2018 Bishop’s Ministry Appeal (BMA) was a great success! Over 10,000 parishioners generously gave $2,998,500 in 2018. 31 parishes achieved their goal, with 100% of all funds a parish raises above goal returned to the parish. I am pleased to report over $700,000 will be distributed to parishes for the 2018 BMA.
Thank you for graciously partnering with us, “As One” to strengthen our parishes and ministries, and to continue building His Kingdom in our Diocese.
In the Peace of Christ,
Myron J. Cotta
Roman Catholic Bishop of Stockton
