Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
I am delighted to introduce you to the Catholic Community Foundation of San Diego, serving parishes, Catholic schools and Catholic organizations in San Diego and Imperial Counties and beyond.
During my brief time in the Diocese of San Diego, I have been impressed by the generous sharing of time, talent and treasure from the faithful of our diocese. We are people of God, blessed abundantly by the Lord and grateful for the many gifts we have received. We owe all that we are and have to a good and gracious God. This practice of stewardship is central to our call to be disciples of the Lord Jesus.
This is your Foundation. Your funds are self-directed. Your generosity in supporting Catholic organizations will ensure the longevity of these organizations to deliver services that you value highly and that are near and dear to your heart.
The Catholic Community Foundation of San Diego will be faithful stewards of your donations. The Foundation is committed to regular communications with its donors, the highest level of integrity and transparency in all matters.
I am proud of the work that is done by our Catholic Foundation, and excited to serve alongside you as together we continue building the Kingdom of God in the Diocese of San Diego.
Our love and compassion for one another is the flame that ignites action in the world.
Together, we continue to discover how faith and generosity abound for the greater glory of God.
May the Lord bless and keep you.
Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Robert W. McElroy
Bishop of San Diego
