Spreading the Good News of the Lord is at the heart of who we are as Catholics and ﬁts directly with our archdiocesan motto “Go Make Disciples.” It is a direct response to Jesus’ great commissioning in the Gospel of Matthew (28: 18-20), “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold I am with you always, until the end of age.”
Today, I write to ask for your consideration of a gift to our Catholic Communications Appeal. Fortunately, with the communication tools available to us here in the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, we do not need to travel from town to town to accomplish Pope Francis’ call to evangelization. We need your help to ensure the following communication outlets continue to serve those in our archdiocese every day of the year: The Sooner Catholic – our archdiocesan newspaper, the archdiocesan website, our social media ministry and our smart phone app. Additionally, 10 percent of the funds raised in this appeal will be contributed to Oklahoma Catholic Broadcasting to support Catholic radio in both English and Spanish with a new focus on bringing Catholic radio to rural communities.
Several one-time gifts are suggested with the option to make a monthly recurring gift, however, you alone with God’s help know what amount is right for you and your ﬁnancial circumstances. You also may make your gift online. No matter the amount of your gift, if given in faith, it will be celebrated with joy!
Be assured you will be remembered in my prayers, and please remember me in yours!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Paul S. Coakley
Archbishop of Oklahoma City
