Paul Acampora, secretary of the Diocesan Secretariat for Stewardship and Development, displays a prayer request card April 9 that donors can fill out for Bishop of Allentown Alfred Schlert to remember in his prayers. “In the Diocese of Allentown we really want to make and keep a promise that your gifts are used specifically in service to children, families, and adults through Catholic Charities, Catholic schools, Catholic Senior Housing, as well as vocations efforts, and Catholic Life and Evangelization ministries,” said Acampora to supporters.
