ARKANSAS CATHOLIC DECEMBER 2, 1990 PAGE 7 December 2, 1990 Dear Friends in Christ: During presentations that were made at our deanery meetings in the fall of 1990, over and over again, I heard two expressions which captured my attention: "A CHURCH THAT DOES NOT EVANGE- LIZE IS DEAD." "A CHURCH THAT DOES NOT ASK FOR MONEY IS DEAD." To evangelize means to share the great gift of faith. To ask for money means an opportunity on the part of Church leadership to link the resources of a family to the sacred causes of Jesus Christ. Without hesitation, I declare myself "AN EVANGELIZER;" I call myself "A MONEY RAISER." Both of these descriptions are offered in the name of Jesus. Gladly, through the hard work of Deacon WiUiam Hartmann, fiscal officer for our diocese, I present a financial record of my stewardship for the year 1989-1990. I welcome the opportunity to thank you for your generous response to all of the needs of your parish church, the needs of the diocese, the needs of the Church Universal. I invoke God's blessings upon you and your family.
