About The Appeal

The Bishop’s Appeal: A Tradition of Generosity and Care 

The Bishop’s Appeal of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany was envisioned 65 years ago by the Most Reverend William A. Scully, Bishop of Albany to financially support the growing services and ministries of the Church.

Ever since, thousands of people across the fourteen counties of our diocese have come together each year to generously empower their parish’s contribution to support the work of the Church to help those in need and to keep our Catholic faith alive and flourishing in our homes, schools and communities.

Today while the main mission of the Bishop’s Appeal remains the same, the need is greater than ever, to financially empower the Church to serve all the people of God, regardless of belief.

The Bishop’s Appeal makes it possible for us as Disciples of Jesus Christ to serve The People of God on a scale a single parish could not possibly do on its own.   By coming together through our caring and faith, each one of us becomes the heart, the hands and the eyes of our Most Blessed Lord, reaching out to those in need of love, compassion and spiritual nourishment.       


Every day throughout our diocese, faith filled individuals go out into their communities in the name of Jesus to love and to serve others in a variety of ways. Some minister to those who are homeless and hungry, to those who are ill or aging. There are teachers who nourish the minds and nurture the faith of our youth in Catholic schools and faith formation programs. There are men and women pursuing vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life in service to the Lord and His people.
