Ever mindful of our mission to promote the liturgical renewal, the Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions remains dedicated to promoting the vision of the Second Vatican Council and implementing its reforms.
Thank you for the many ways you have assisted in that mission – you serve your Bishop, you provide liturgical formation for clergy and other liturgical ministers, and you prepare liturgies which offer God due praise. This Federation exists to serve you and that ministry -- our common endeavors and our mutual support sustain us all. The national meeting, publications, workshops, seasonal planning aids, etc. are all aimed at making your load lighter and your ministry stronger.
We ask you to join us in supporting the work of the FDLC. Your support and contribution to the FDLC Annual Appeal provides the Federation with the means to continue our service to the dioceses and parishes of the United States.
Catholics who take seriously the call to stewardship as a way of life plan their charitable giving as part of their annual family budget and choose those organizations which most clearly support their values and are close to their heart. The Gospel tells us that where our treasure is, there our heart will be (Matthew 6:21). The corollary is also true. Where our heart is, our treasure will follow. Liturgy is close to all of our hearts. For many of us, liturgy is our life’s work. For some, liturgy is a passion of our heart, though not a full-time ministry. In either case, FDLC strongly aligns with your heart and your values.
Prayerfully consider whatever you can afford to give. We hope you will be a part of this wonderful effort by donating today! All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. If you have already donated to this year’s Appeal, please accept our sincere appreciation.
On behalf of the Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions, thank you for all your support and care. May God continue to bless you and your ministry.
