Together in Mission (TIM) is Archbishop Gomez’ Annual Appeal to supports evangelization in our communities by helping needy parishes and faith formation through support of parish schools, in some cases tuition for needy parochial school students and religious education programs for public school students.
The 2017 TIM appeal was the most successful appeal since 2007 raising more than $16.3 million dollars from 86,000 donors in 303 parishes across the Archdiocese, and it was the most successful appeal since 2007.
More than 250 Saint Barbara Parish families participated in the 2017 TIM appeal.
2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the Together in Mission appeal. In 2018, donors may use a smartphone application to make their donations and pledges may be paid over 10 monthly installments.
Parishioners who have contributed to TIM in prior years received a mailing January 31, 2018.
This weekend, February 3-4, parishes across the Archdiocese of LA will place Together in Mission announcements in the bulletin
February 3-4 is Announcement Weekend
February 10-11 is Commitment Weekend pledge envelopes in pews.
Message from the Archbishop
Together in Mission is a unique annual appeal and all the money raised is given directly and exclusively to our poorest parishes and schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of Together in Mission, and our theme for this anniversary year is “Let us Love.” Christian love is a call to action. Jesus calls us to open our hearts and extend a helping hand to those who are most vulnerable and most in need in Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
May Our Blessed Mother watch over you in her tender love and may our gracious God grant you peace and joy and love.
Most Reverend Jose H. Gomez
Archbishop of Los Angeles
