The Gospel mandate, and an unwavering emphasis of Pope Francis, is that our love for God must be reflected in our love for one another, especially the weak and vulnerable. In response to that call, our Diocese remains fully committed to increasing our outreach to feed, clothe, educate and pray with those in most need of assistance.
The Bishop’s Annual Appeal (BAA) is the combined effort of all parishes and parishioners in the Diocese of Raleigh to provide this outreach. With the help of God, our combined efforts can have a tremendous impact in responding to those who depend on our help.

The theme of the 2017 Bishop’s Annual Appeal, “Instruments of God’s Mercy,” serves as a reminder to imitate God’s mercy by providing love and support to those in need. Over 30 ministries are supported by the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, and we invite you to explore the BAA site to learn more about the impact of your generosity to the campaign.
The BAA kicks off in January and concludes in December. Over $120 million has now been raised since its inception in 1978, including over $7.7 million in 2016. Thank you for your support!
For questions regarding your BAA pledge or payments, please contact Margaret Fetters in the Parish Office, 919-942-6227 To contact by email, click at email me ...@stmchapelhill.org
Once our parish BAA goal has been reached, St Thomas More will receive 100% of all BAA funds collected. These will be used to meet parish needs.
