Dear Friends in Christ: Each year The U.P. Catholic newspaper publishes the annual financial reports of the Diocese of Marquette. These reports give a snapshot view of the work of the Church in the Upper Peninsula and provide an accounting of the diocesan finances. I am deeply thankful for your generous support that allows these many ministries to function. Good stewardship is of upmost importance and I assure you that those who manage the finances of the diocese do so prudently, keeping in mind the trust that has been given to them. Good stewardship involves more than finances, but also time and talent. I am most appre- ciative of the many parishioners who keep our parishes, missions, schools and other minis- tries running by sharing their time and talents. Our parishioners' volunteer efforts may be found supporting the Church from the altar society to the choir loft and far into our commu- nities. In my two years at the diocese I have been impressed by the zeal of our parishioners living out our faith. Many of you have heard my call to be a friend of Jesus; make a friend; and introduce your friend to Jesus. I ask one more thing. Please keep me and the whole diocese in your prayers, that we may remain faithful to the good news of the Gospel and share the Joy of the Gospel with all we encounter. May the peace of Christ fill your hearts and homes. Sincerely in Christ, Faithful stewardship is the focus of diocesan finances *Financial statements are found on pages 14-16.
