2024 Bishops' Annual Appeal Newsletter Cover

Dear Friends in Christ,

We are reminded throughout Scripture that God has formed an everlasting covenant with us. This covenant is an invitation to enter into relationship with God and to act together in harmony with one another and all the earth. As we launch the 2024 Bishops’ Annual Appeal, we invite you to join us in deepening covenants we have formed as the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts.

One of those covenants is to support mission and ministry in congregations aligned with our diocesan mission strategy. Last year, in addition to the $1.2 million allocated towards ongoing mission initiatives, our diocese reserved an additional $40,000 for allocation to new endeavors. Our diocese also awards Sending Serving grants to support domestic and international ministries that enhance the outreach of congregations through new or existing programs. We invite you to learn more about these ministries in this newsletter.

Every gift to the Bishops’ Annual Appeal matters!  Will you help us reach our goal?

Mission Initiatives allocations and Sending Serving grants are just two of the ways our diocese joins together to support Christ’s ministry near and far.  We know that with your help we can reach—and we pray, surpass!—our  goal of raising $200,000 to provide financial support for our diverse shared  ministries and initiatives.  

Our diocesan mission strategy is a covenant to become ever more faithful and generous disciples of Jesus. With your support, the Bishops’ Annual Appeal promotes this goal through lifelong Christian formation, youth and young adult ministries, racial justice and creation care initiatives, as well as  multicultural and immigration outreach.

Your generous, joyful giving to the Bishops’ Annual Appeal is essential to the success of these vital, strategic ministries.  Please join us in supporting this important work!

Faithfully and fondly, in Christ,

The Rt. Rev. Alan M. Gates
The Rt. Rev. Carol J. Gallagher
