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.
