Thank you to Bishop Tobin for the wonderful praise for our team who lead the Diocese of Providence’s $50 million Diocesan-wide capital campaign, Grateful For God’s Providence. The Campaign’s purpose was to provide greatly needed funding for several causes: the education of seminarians, support for retired priests, tuition assistance for Catholic Schools, support for Catholic charities and social ministry, funding for the preservation of the beautiful cathedral, and, very significantly, for the parishes, the communities where Catholics regularly experience and practice their faith. The campaign has raised over $54 million to date, a wonderful accomplishment at any time, but most especially while being conducted in the middle of a global pandemic. We are very grateful to Bishop Tobin, the pastors, administrators, lay leaders and parishioners of the Diocese of Providence for their sacrifice in time, talent and treasure to make the campaign a success. Over the years, Bishop Tobin has not just been a client, but has become a true friend to those of us who have had the privilege to work with him both in The Diocese of Youngstown and The Diocese of Providence.
