Letter from Bishop James F. Checchio
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
You and I are privileged to be called to carry out the very work of Jesus. What an honor for us to join the long line of people going back 2,000 years who have been doing this since the time of the Apostles! Thanks be to God for the faithfulness of so many generations of people between the Apostles and us! Now it is our time to continue the work of evangelization. Through the ministries and services of our Diocese, we strive to light a fire in the heart of our world, here in this beautiful part of New Jersey. Let us strive together to kindle the fire of Christ within us, so that we can share this beautiful light with others. Our neighborhoods and homes, our parishes and schools, our hospitals and social agencies—everywhere that we go is affected by the faith and Christian values we have and give witness to through our actions; and how our world needs this now! Thank you for all that you do in the work of evangelization, passing on the faith entrusted to us by our Lord Himself.
It is because of the faithful generosity of people like you that the Diocese of Metuchen has been able to build up programs and organizations that have served our Church and society so well through the years. We have reorganized these ministries this past year and were able to cut down our overhead. The increased generosity of our faithful helped us to balance our budget last year too! Thank you! Even though I am told that our Mass count for last year increased by 3,000 souls over the previous year (what a blessing!), the challenging times in which we live call us to double down in our evangelization efforts to spread the faith to new believers and bring back others who have drifted away from us. Likewise, new ways of keeping our youth involved in the Church are a priority for the upcoming year. Gratefully, our number of seminarians has increased to 19, the most we have had in many years, so we need more help with the increased costs of this blessing too! The ministries and new initiatives high-lighted in the enclosed brochure are just some of the ways we are working to bring Christ’s saving message to all people and we need your continued support of the Bishop’s Annual Appeal to embark upon this new chapter of evangelization.
We need the help of every household in our efforts! Please help today! Would you prayerfully consider making a sacrificial gift, knowing that we are cooperating with the grace of the Holy Spirit and Lighting a Fire in the Heart of our World.
With renewed best wishes, I remain
Yours in Christ,
Most Reverend James F. Checchio, JCD, MBA
Bishop of Metuchen
