My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
United across 19 counties in 170 Archdiocesan parishes and missions, we are called to live a life of compassion, unity, and discipleship — to be with our brothers and sisters in their journey of faith.
The 2020 Annual Archbishop’s Appeal has as its theme, “Accompany with Joy, Give with Grace.” To accompany is the willingness to listen deeply to the experiences, needs, joys, and hardships of another. It is your response to imitate Christ by sharing the Gospel message of love.
Through our efforts, we will accompany, love, and assist others beyond your parish boundaries by
offering to proclaim the Word of God, celebrate the sacraments, and respond in charity. You will
evangelize and share Christ’s love through acts of kindness, help the formation of seminarians and
deacons, care for retired clergy, and protect God’s most vulnerable — the hungry, homeless, elderly,
unborn, sick, prisoner, and lonely.
Thank you for your prayers and generosity.
May God continue to bless you!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Gustavo García-Siller, MSpS
Archbishop of San Antonio
