Limited Edition Bishops’ Appeal 2019 Calendars – Now Available in D&G
The Bishops’ Appeal 2019 Calendar is now available and funds raised through its purchase will support communities all over the world.
For just €10, the calendar will raise funds to make a difference on the ground throughout 2019. It commemorates the Disestablishment of the Church of Ireland – the 150th anniversary of which starts next year – and each month provides a reflection from its bishops on issues or projects that have been supported by Bishops’ Appeal over the years.
The Rt Revd Patrick Rooke, Chair of the Bishops’ Appeal Advisory Committee, said: “2019 marks the 150th anniversary of the Disestablishment of the Church of Ireland. Throughout those 150 years, this Church has worked to support the disadvantaged in some of the poorest parts of the world. The calendar is both a celebration of that partnership but also a reminder of how life is for so many. Those who purchase a calendar will be supporting this ongoing work as we seek to bring relief to disaster situations as well as supporting health, education and rural development projects”.
