Bishop's Annual Appeal


The Bishop's Annual Appeal supports and gives the people of Eastern North Carolina the opportunity to demonstrate their belief in giving back some of their blessings from the Lord to reach out to those less fortunate. Please know that your gift does matter very much. We can only achieve our potential as God's Church for carrying out the mission entrusted to us if we each do our part.

The theme of the 2016 Bishop’s Annual Appeal, “Instruments of God’s Mercy,” coincides with Pope Francis’s Jubilee Year of Mercy and serves as a reminder to imitate God’s mercy by providing love and support to those in need. Over 30 ministries are supported by the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, and we invite you to explore the BAA site to learn more about the impact of your generosity to the campaign. you can read the entire 2016 BAA  plan here.

Each parish in the diocese has pledge goal. The goal for St. Joseph for 2016 is $5,579 You can conveniently make your pledge online. Donate Now! We are looking to meet this goal with full participation from the parish.

Your pledge will help the Church fulfill its call to transform our world. Thank you for joining as one in making great things happen as we carry on the cross of Christ's compassion in our place and time.
