Since 1988, the Associates of the Archbishop have responded to the invitation to participate directly in the mission of the archbishop. When God calls upon us to carry out His divine will, the Associates proclaim with one voice, Thy Will Be Done.
Since its beginning, the Associates have contributed over $150 million to the Annual Catholic Appeal. They have used their leadership, prayerful support and financial gifts to bring much needed faith, hope and love to our brothers and sisters in need throughout our region. Their sacrifice and stewardship are essential to supporting daily works of mercy and grace in our communities and sustaining our faith.
Each year, Associates’ names are listed in a membership roster, making a bold witness of their faith and stewardship of God’s good gifts. Members also join together for an annual recognition celebration with the archbishop. In the fall, Associates are invited to share their intentions, which are kept in the prayers of the retired priests at Regina Cleri.
