Dear Brothers in Christ,
As the New Year of 2020 has begun, we are preparing for the annual Diocesan Annual Ministry Appeal. It is an important annual drive that enables vital ministries of the Diocese of Monterey, which have a real positive impact on the people we serve. By now your Parish office should have received the AMA materials (brochures, posters, in-pew envelopes), and this week the Bishop’s letter will be mailed to all AMA donors who have contributed in previous years.
In an effort to better communicate the impact of AMA donations, I have asked our Office to create two short videos, one in English and one in Spanish, which speak about some of the important aspects of the ministry. I would like to encourage you to consider showing these videos after your weekend Masses or in some of your ministry meetings, such as during the regular hospitality or social gatherings. We would also like to encourage you to post the links to these videos in your parish’s website and/or in your weekly bulletin.
Here are the links to the videos:

I thank you in advance for your support in helping make the 2020 AMA a success.
Sincerely in Christ,
+Most Reverend Daniel E. Garcia
Bishop of Monterey
