We truly are a Family of Faith in Action here in the North Country! The support of our family of faith has a far-reaching impact through the ministries and programs that depend on the annual Bishop’s Fund Appeal. I also wish to extend my deep appreciation to our pastors whose strong leadership and personal sacrifice supports this critical appeal each year.”
